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.
