All task forces are diverse: rank, roles, ethnicity, organizations, disciplines, departments, other characteristics

Recommendations: Promising Admissions Practices
4. Contact all admits by phone after theyâ€™re admitted. Include current students in the effort. 5. Involve current students in admissions process in significant ways. 6. Employ second-look strategy to ensure bias has not influenced a decision.
Recommendations: Promising Admissions Practices 7. Emphasize several indicators of academic potential (GPA, scholarships, experience, references, the student essay, GREs).
8. Have at least two committee members review each application.
Moving the Needle on Diversity
How Did we do in 2012?
Student Diversity: Entering Class of 2012 American Indian/Alaskan Native 1% Two or more races 8% Other/Unknown 8%
Black/African American 12% Hispanic of any race 5%
Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander 0%
. . . And modest increases in faculty and staff diversity
To change the world, we need new revenue sources.
