Diversity and inclusion has been a hot topic
in academia for a long time. Yet, despite many
discussions on this issue and legal battles,
statistics show that we are far from achieving
success when it comes to recruiting and retaining
diverse faculty in institutions of higher education,
particularly when it comes to gender and race.
This panel is aimed at proposing best practices
based on the experiences of the panelists.
Sharing of other experiences by the audience
will be encouraged so we can put together a
document that can be used by ICFAD members
to improve their chances for success regarding
diversity and inclusion in their institutions.
This work was originally presented at Crossing Boundaries. The 54th. Annual Conference of the International Council of Fine Arts Deans in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
