The extension of the tenure clock was noted as supportive of faculty work/life balance. A new performance management system for staff has been created that provides more helpful comments during the review process. Progress An African-American male was hired as Associate VP for Health Sciences and Chief Organization Effectiveness and Human Resources Officer. He is a member of the newly formed council. The Achievement Scholarships helped increase the proportion of under presented students by 12% entering MED-1 classes. The College noted the retention of minority faculty and staff as progress. This was based on the percent of minorities who left when compared to the proportion of minority who remained. This is a limited measure of retention. Results on the study of women faculty initiated by the Dean in 2001 were not discussed and should be included in next year’s report. In the future, progress should be reported for the College as a whole and by each department separately. Progress as measured against the specific College goals in part VII was difficult to track. There was little discussion of assessment and timeline. Section VII of the report should be revised to reflect the systematic approach to issues emerging in the College and should tie goals back to goals for the College and each department. Goals from the newly formed council should be reflected in part VII as part of the goals for the College. 15

Response to Recommendations The specific recommendations from last year were referred to the new council to develop policies related to improving the proportion of women among the regular faculty, instituting the mentoring program, reviewing the applicant data, and disseminating diversity goals to the departments. The council is positioned to take these kinds of actions and next year’s report should measure specific progress. Nursing Overall Assessment The College of Nursing is committed to making progress towards achievement of its diversity goals. Its Diversity Committee was established in 2000 and “continues to lead diversity initiatives for faculty, staff, and students.” The unit thrives to enrich the diversity emphasis in the environment through regular educational programs, art displays, academic/financial support functions for students, an open house session, completion of strategic planning, joint OMA graduate professional visitation days, and numerous social events. However, there is no minority person in any leadership role. There are only two African American female clinical faculty, two male faculty and no minority faculty members on regular tenured track appointments. Recruitment and diversity programs seem to depend a great deal on the aforementioned individuals. The role and work task of a minority student advisor position may need to be evaluated for possible enhancement as part of the diversity efforts of the College. The report indicated that a large number of African American and male student recruitment activities did not produce expected results.

    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.
