What is MIT doing to address issues relating to minority faculty at MIT?
The Council on Faculty Diversity is the focus for our efforts in these areas. We have restructured our processes for faculty searches to set higher standards for aggressive and thorough canvassing of the applicant pool for women and minority candidates. Under the auspices of the council, Professor Evelynn Hammonds convened a conference this winter of women faculty of color from around the country to examine these issues on a national scale. A version of this article appeared in MIT Tech Talk on March 20, 2002.
