Timely. Relevant. Essential. The 2018 ADEA Diversity WorkshopThe Power of Broadened Perspectives: Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Faculty in Dental Education—is a can’t-miss learning and networking experience. The benefits of educational diversity and the importance of identity, cultural diversity and intercultural relations permeate the national dialogue on college campuses. What action steps are required to recruit and retain a diverse faculty?

Diverse faculty bring a wide range of experiences to an institution and play an important role in broadening the educational perspectives of students and the entire campus community.  More diverse faculty influence and expand leadership, curricular content, research, and ideas with lifetime impact for students. Join us for a one-day symposium centered on overcoming challenges and implementing faculty diversity best practices as a means of broadening perspectives in dental education. Key foci include:

  • Institutional barriers and best practices that impact the recruitment and retention of underrepresented and marginalized faculty.
  • Strategies that your dental school or program can undertake to support underrepresented and marginalized faculty on your campus.

The Co-chair of the ADEA Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee, Dennis A. Mitchell, D.D.S., M.P.H., Professor and Vice Provost for Faculty Diversity and Inclusion, Columbia University, is the featured speaker. Along with other subject matter experts, we’ll explore faculty recruitment and retention efforts throughout higher education, faculty diversity data trends in dental education, and the transferability of best practices programs to your dental school or program.
