Description: The need to diversify our engineering faculty is of general agreement. However, as we seek to recruit and retain these individuals, we must acknowledge the current culture of our institutions. What are the issues and can acknowledging them help us bring about real change? What do we need to know and recognize? What do new faculty need to know as they enter the academy?
