Faculty Allies for Diversity

Faculty allies for diversity in graduate education work with the Rackham Graduate School at the program level on issues of recruitment, admissions, retention and completion. The following faculty members are also contacts on diversity issues for students within their own program.

The diversity initiatives of the Graduate School complement the activities of faculty to strengthen the diversity in individual graduate programs and departments. This program is designed to identify faculty members with interest in building diversity initiatives within their own departments, with their own students and colleagues. The program seeks to support and facilitate connections to other, like-minded faculty colleagues across the Graduate School to form communities where innovative and effective ideas and strategies for enhancing diversity can be shared.
