Faculty Diversity

Bowdoin is committed to the instruction and support of a diverse student population and to faculty who enrich and contribute to the College's ethnic and cultural diversity.

A variety of initiatives and efforts over the years have supported these goals. For example, in 2008 and 2009, the Faculty voted to renew and affirm their commitment with the approval of a target-of-opportunity hiring policy, a policy on increasing faculty diversity, and subsequently the creation, and continuation, of a Committee for Faculty Diversity and Inclusion.
