Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Fairmount College

The principles of diversity, equity and inclusion are infused throughout the teaching, research, and service conducted in the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. For several years, Fairmount College has included an advocate on every search conducted for new faculty. These search advocates, faculty members with expertise in hiring best practices, advise the committees on which they serve on issues ranging from generating a diverse pool of applicants to conducting fair and inclusive interviews to planning successful campus visits. Advocates, together with Dean Andrew Hippisley, have designed standards to guide their work.
