Diversity in Academe: Who Sets a College’s Diversity Agenda?


True diversity remains a struggle for many colleges. This special report looks at who actually sets a college’s diversity agenda, and what makes that agenda flourish or flop. These questions have taken on a special urgency as race-related protests have erupted on many campuses and as the nation’s population grows more diverse.

Our coverage examines some of the many efforts underway to make campuses more diverse and inclusive. One thing almost everyone agrees on: You can’t measure diversity just by counting numbers. Authentic diversity — in the student body, on the faculty, and in the many unscripted encounters that make up daily life on a campus — requires a deep and broadly shared commitment.
