Broadening the Scope of Diversity: Implications for the Recruitment and Retention of Diverse Faculty
Research on recruiting and retaining diverse faculty in higher education includes a traditional definition of diversity, mainly intergroup differences. Intragroup differences are omitted, in spite of research on intraracial diversity among minorities. As institutions of higher education seek to recruit and retain minority faculty, they must consider broadening the scope of diversity. This literature review examines the need to link intragroup diversity to the body of research on diverse faculty in higher education.
