Faculty Diversity Enhancement Program

The Faculty Diversity Enhancement Program (FDEP) is designed to attract candidates who advance our commitment to fostering an inclusive environment characterized by:

  • cultural understanding and engagement
  • ethical behavior
  • a commitment to social justice

The goal of FDEP is to enrich student experiences by increasing faculty members who have a demonstrated commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and access in teaching scholarship, and service.

FDEP includes two alternative avenues for funding and supporting candidates' growth and development.
