Provost’s Faculty Diversity Fund

To advance inclusive excellence and promote diversity at Santa Clara, the University has made a strong commitment to increasing the representation of its BIPOC student body, faculty, and staff. Since Fall of 2018, 56% of our tenure-track faculty hires have been faculty of color. However, a significant amount of work still needs to be done to ensure that students of all backgrounds see themselves reflected in our faculty.

The Provost’s Faculty Diversity Fund supports the recruitment, retention and career advancement of outstanding faculty and postdoctoral scholars while providing resources to assist academic units in developing strategic programmatic areas. This will build on the funding secured for the expansion of Inclusive Excellence Postdoctoral Fellows positions, as well as mentoring and course releases that will support the early development of teaching scholars from historically underrepresented groups.
