URSMD Faculty Diversity Liaison Committee

The Faculty Diversity Liaison Committee was developed to enhance two-way communication between the Dean's Office and the Departments about the needs of our diverse faculty and trainees. The committee goals are:

  1. To provide a forum for consistent communication between the Office of the Senior Associate Dean for Diversity (SADD) and the individual departments in a consistent fashion.
  2. To communicate departmental efforts, questions, requests, etc. to the SADD and to the committee and to return information to the department leadership and department faculty and trainees.
  3. To provide input and feedback to the SADD regarding the needs of the department and to work with the SADD as needed to develop department specific initiatives.


University of Rochester Faculty Diversity Officers

Working closely with the University of Rochester Office for Faculty Development and Diversity, the Faculty Diversity Officers (FDO) collaborate with University leadership and faculty to develop strategies that foster the hiring and retention of underrepresented faculty. Among other things, the FDO is involved in the analysis of collected diversity data and helps create opportunities for conversation/dialogue to promote diversity. The group includes representatives from across the university.
