AAC&U News: "It Takes More than Goodwill: A Grassroots Effort to Increase Faculty Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion"
February 8, 2021
For the last decade, faculty at Florida International University (FIU) have spearheaded an interdisciplinary, grassroots effort to improve recruitment, tenure, and promotion processes for women and faculty of color. This AAC&U case study showcases the work of FIU's Office to Advance Women, Equity, & Diversity (AWED), and discusses how they used Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey results across multiple years to identify areas of opportunity, guide policy and programmatic changes, and track the impact of their efforts.
As a national research project, COACHE produces numerous reports and key findings on our survey data about what motivates faculty to remain at or depart from an institution. Over the years, COACHE’s research has been highlighted in the media and COACHE staff have been interviewed on faculty matters by Inside Higher Education, The Chronicle of Higher Education and The New York Times, among many other outlets.
If you would like to speak with COACHE experts on faculty affairs, faculty development, survey research, data use in higher education, or related matters, please contact Deborah Ruiz, Assistant Director of Marketing and Engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (617)495-6047.
