Dr. Chavous was quoted in a 10/8/17 US News & World Report article titled "How Faculty Diversity Can Impact the College Years":

Faculty members of color can be an asset inside and outside of the classroom, says Tabbye M. Chavous, a professor of education and psychology and director of the National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan—Ann Arbor.

"Faculty of color provide students with diverse role models and help provide more effective mentoring to students of color," she wrote in an email. "Exposure in college to a diverse faculty along with diversified curricula and teaching methods produces students who are more complex thinkers, more confident in traversing cultural differences, and more likely to seek to remedy inequities after graduation."
