The Diversity Scholars Network is made of hundreds of scholars from around the world from various disciplines, studying innumerable topics and populations, and using a multitude of methodologies. Visit the Scholar Directory to learn more about individual scholars!
The fundamental purpose of the Scholars Network is to support and promote scholars' research and practical efforts to address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. A long-time goal of the NCID is to raise the national dialogue by advocating for evidence-based solutions to social issues. To that end, we maintain an ongoing showcase of scholars' work, distributed through newsletters and promoted on our website and social media. One such avenue is our monthly series, Scholar Stories.
