Gause, C. P.; Dennison, Susan; Perrin, David H.
Quest, v62 n1 p61-75 Feb 2010
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) continues to redefine the public research university for the 21st century as an inclusive, collaborative, and responsive institution making a difference in the lives of students and the communities it serves. We chronicle UNCG's journey to become a more inclusive community and present the universities' statement on diversity and inclusiveness, institutional profile, historical overview of processes taken for diversifying the faculty, and initiatives for creating a more inclusive campus. This paper provides data gathered from the Deans Council Subcommittee on Recruitment and Retention of Ethnic Minority Faculty, survey data from The Campus Unity Council and focus group data from The Inclusive Community Initiative Task Force. We conclude by highlighting accomplishments from implemented recommendations and plans for our continued journey in developing a more inclusive 21st century university. (Contains 1 table.)
