What is the HEARD Committee?


Faculty Recruitment and Retention subcommittee:


Current Initiatives:

1 Recruitment three faculty from underrepresented groups (one for each area of concentration) over the next calendar year.

2 Promote hiring of faculty candidates from underrepresented groups to tenure-track positions on an ongoing basis by investing needed resources to expand recruitment networks, and diversifying search committees.

3 Identify and remove barriers to retention of faculty from underrepresented groups, including expanding junior faculty mentoring programs.

Any who wish to participate in the subcommittee are welcome to join and should email Dr. Jeff Boissoneault to receive invitations for upcoming meetings.
