RETENTION of FACULTY & STAFF of COLOR CONFERENCE

Published by under Uncategorized

September 20 and 21, 2012
CHAS Conference
on
Retention of Faculty and Staff of Color
hosted by Skidmore College

The purpose of the conference on Best Practices for the Recruitment and Retention of Faculty and Staff of Color (Skidmore College, September 2012) is to convene individuals from the CHAS member institutions –department chairs and program directors, faculty, upper and middle-level administrators in academic and student affairs, human resources, advancement, and finance and administration—to discuss strategies, practices and processes that have successfully contributed to the recruitment and retention of faculty and staff of color. We will also identify one national expert who can lead us to rethink existing models and advise us in the implementation of best practices. We understand that the diversity of faculty and staff is inextricably related to the ability of our institutions to realize their educational missions. We also recognize that many of us are struggling, particularly with retention, and that this conference will help us to re-examine existing practices and assist us in making much needed progress on this important goal.
