Faculty Diversity Collaborative


We have reimagined central support for faculty diversity providing resources for inclusive hiring, structure for sustained and coordinated mentoring, as well as funding opportunities to build intellectual community and support discovery through collaboration across our departments, schools, and campuses.

Upcoming Events

Promoting Inclusive Hiring

Rutgers - New Brunswick offers a faculty recruitment workshop, Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence (STRIDE), to better support inclusive hiring. The workshop slides and other tools are publicly available.

Rich Intellectual Life

Explore affiliated programs, research centers, and funded initiatives that advance diversity in the academy.


The INSPIRE program serves to fulfill two important goals: prepare diverse university-trained Ph.D. scholars for successful careers as scientist-educators while increasing the participation of diverse student populations in biomedical science research fields. 

Institute for Global Racial Justice

The Institute for the Study of Global Racial Justice is a conduit for new knowledge and ideas, providing opportunities for Rutgers faculty whose inquiries address racism and social inequality to work collaboratively and effect meaningful action and positive change.


University Committee on Diversity, Race and Gender

This universitywide committee formed in July 2019 is a partnership between the university administration and the union to recommend initiatives pertaining to diversity, including diversity training, recruitment, retention, mentoring, and professional development.
