Ivy Tech is currently working to develop our 8th
strategic planning goal on diversity, equity and belonging. In this
episode of Our College. Your Voices we convened a
roundtable discussion with five Ivy Tech faculty to discuss various
aspects of their experience as a diverse faculty member at Ivy
Tech. The discussion was unscripted and unrehearsed.
In the discussion, we discussed the article
Undue Burden from June 4, 2019, in
Inside Higher Education. It is based on a survey
of 469 ecology and evolutionary biology faculty members from
underrepresented groups across the United States. It discusses the
unrecognized work that many underrepresented faculty members
perform by virtue of their status that may go unrecognized by the
evaluation and promotion process.
