Diversity Study

Diversity Banner 2

The City University of New York is conducting a study to examine the effectiveness of its faculty recruitment and diversity activities over the past 10 years.  This study will also assess the experiences of underrepresented groups** and identify the best recruitment and retention practices within the University and at peer institutions.  The goals of the study are to develop a framework for improving the representation and experience of women and minorities and to strengthen the climate for diversity and inclusion across the University. 

Diversity Study Objectives:

  • To conduct a comprehensive assessment of current recruitment and retention policies, initiatives, and activities at the City University of New York (CUNY).
  • To identify issues inherent to CUNY and academia that impact the recruitment, selection, development, and retention of faculty from underrepresented groups.
  • To develop recommendations for improving representation, retention and satisfaction of faculty from underrepresented groups as well as strengthening the climate for diversity and inclusion.
  • To identify the University’s current strengths, challenges, and key strategic opportunities as well as gaps in current services or programs.
  • To develop a strategic framework that includes objectives, desired results, measurements, resource requirements, and timelines.
