Progress despite recruitment efforts the demographics

Progress Despite recruitment efforts, the demographics of the college are not changing. While 2 African American faculty were hired, there continues to be only 1 African American full professor. Last year, 4 female full professors left for other universities, to be replaced by 3 female assistant professors. At best, there has been a revolving door. Retention of minority graduate students is an issue for SBS. There was a decrease in the percentage of African American and American Indian graduate students. The minority graduate student recruiting support to departments was temporarily suspended for one year and has been redesigned based on an analysis of effective recruitment techniques. Given the importance of this issue to the college, it is recommended that next year’s report include a discussion of the decision-making data for the changes, identification of the specific changes made, and the results of the changes by department. SBS has detailed some departments and specific strategies to address diversity that are identified as note worthy but this resulted in uneven reporting of progress across the college. Future reports should provide a comprehensive view of the college by including each department in the results. Response to Recommendations There were 3 recommendations including sub-recommendations. The college has implemented exit interviews and a climate survey is being developed to include GLBT issues, as well as an overall climate assessment. Results of each of these should be included in next year’s report. SBS also clarified its meaning of the word “qualified” in faculty position descriptions. 8

PROFESSIONAL COLLEGES Education Overall Assessment Structurally and programmatically, the College of Education (COE) is one of the OSU units most engaged in achieving excellence through diversity. COE has established an organizational structure that infuses diversity in its governance system in multiple ways. The College has a Diversity Team that includes the following: Assistant Dean for Equity and Diversity; Director of the Office of Equity and Diversity; College Council’s Equity and Diversity Committee; College’s Human Resource Manager; Director of the Office of Advancement; school-level coordinators and diversity committees, and representatives from offices of student services. This multi-level approach to diversity has ensured that diversity goals appear as core values in departmental governance documents and that diversity is addressed in timely and meaningful ways across all three Schools within the College. For recruiting faculty, COE continues to broadly advertise all positions and supplies search committees with diversity videos, workbooks, and edited collections on diversity in higher education. At the annual national gathering of the American Educational Research Association, the Diversity Team hosts an annual Recruitment Breakfast to target faculty of color. For recruiting graduate students, representatives from COE visited 17 historically black, 4 historically Hispanic, and 1 Native Hawaiian institution.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
