The Diversity Scholars Network fosters an interdisciplinary multi-institutional community of scholars to strengthen research and scholarship about diversity, equity and inclusion and address issues in education and society. Members of the Network are identified for their commitment and contribution to diversity research and scholarship. The National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) supports and connects the shared knowledge by providing opportunities for research and dissemination across the academy and beyond.

The purpose of the Network is to:

  • Build community for information sharing and collaboration
  • Support production of cutting-edge research
  • Facilitate translation of scholarship to practice
  • Promote and disseminate scholarship
  • Support career success and advancement in the academy


A primary goal of the Network is to share information and resources that enable members to develop high quality scholarship and apply their scholarship in innovative and effective ways. As such, we provide opportunities for members to develop productive relationships and collaborations with others across your campus and around the nation.

This Network acts as a scholarly support system with mentorship opportunities, collective advancement in the academy, and collaborative interactions to create social change. Members receive exclusive access to resources to support their scholarship production and dissemination. Each member is included in the Scholars Directory and their work is featured throughout the NCID website, social media platforms, and newsletters.

Beyond virtual engagement, members are invited to attend Network convenings at the University of Michigan and receive priority invitation at special events. Once a member, scholars also benefit from the work of NCID through activities such as participating in events, writing reports or blog posts, and accessing resources.
