The National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) collaborates with other publications to mobilize diversity scholars in writing about critical social issues. Collaboration projects include:
Centering Social Justice in the Scholarship of Community Engagement
Through our partnership with the Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning we produced a special issue on Centering Social Justice in the Scholarship of Community Engagement, based on the premise that exploring the roles and promise of higher education in working toward social justice was a critical imperative.
Campus Climate and STEM Success
Today’s student body is more diverse than ever before. But students enrolled in science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) disciplines remain largely homogeneous. Women and underrepresented minorities often cite climate as a barrier to their persistence and completion in these fields.
This blog series on campus climate and STEM success aims to unpack differences, similarities, and connections between STEM departmental climate and the climate of the campus at large to highlight approaches that can increase the enrollment, retention, and success of marginalized students. This blog series was a partnership with Higher Education Today, a blog by the American Council on Education.
The Role of Academic Diversity Officers
In recent years, colleges and universities increasingly have been called upon to respond to the history of exclusion and marginalization of underrepresented faculty, staff, and students. Many institutions have answered by adopting practices and interventions to address historical educational inequity.
This blog series is written by six Academic Diversity Officers (ADOs) who discuss their roles, the challenges they face, and the opportunities these positions bring to college and university campuses. This blog series was a partnership with Higher Education Today, a blog by the American Council on Education.
