Vanderbilt University’s New Website Aims to Promote Inclusion for Faculty Members

Vanderbilt University has launched a new website dedicated to faculty development and diversity. The website serves as a resource to the university’s schools and departments on programs to enhance diversity at Vanderbilt.

The website, while operational, is still in development. But it provides links to various university web pages dealing with diversity and outside resources on best diversity practices used by other universities and organizations. Information on faculty development, research opportunities, mentoring, awards, and other programs to assist faculty members is also available.

John Geer, vice provost for academic and strategic affairs at Vanderbilt, notes that “our aim is to provide a clear and accessible resource for faculty in support of the university’s efforts to enhance Vanderbilt as a welcoming, supportive and inclusive academic community.”
