UH Joins National Effort to Create More Diverse STEM Faculty

(Patrick) #1

Mark Clarke, associate provost for faculty development and faculty affairs at UH, said participation in the Aspire Alliance is a logical outgrowth of evidence-driven work begun by the Center for ADVANCING UH Faculty Success, which was funded by a $3.3 million NSF grant.

That project has yielded tangible results: The center reports that over the last two hiring cycles, under-represented minorities made up 23 percent and 29 percent respectively of incoming tenure-track faculty campus-wide.
