Call for Proposals–Keeping our Faculty of Color Symposium

Forwarding a call for proposals for the April 14-16 Keeping Our Faculty of Color Symposium at the University of Minnesota (and sponsored by Minnesota State Colleges & Universities). www.cce.umn.edu/Keeping-our-Faculty
 
Have you been to one of the Keeping Our Faculty of Color meetings in the past? Yes or no, I encourage you to add it to your calendar.
 
This is a great opportunity to talk with colleagues from around the state and country about the challenges of changing numbers (see the ones below)—but more importantly about increasing, for the enrichment of all, the diversity in our classrooms, departments and campuses.
 
In 2011-12, 9.1% of MnSCU faculty were people of color,
…as compared to 20.8% of our students (in 2010-11)
…and as compared to 13.1% of Minnesota residents.
