Changing the National Conversation on Diversity to Create Inclusive Environments in Higher Education: A Summit on Strategies for Success from Postdocs to Presidents (2017-2019); PI: Dr. Ruth Enid Zambrana. Funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

In collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania, a summit is being planned to convene thought leaders, high level administrative leaders and influencers in higher education to engage in a conversation on what are the successful practices that can produce, promote and sustain principles of the life and quality arc of diversity, equity and inclusion in high education and to shine the light on innovative strategies in the recruitment, retention and promotion of historically underrepresented minorities (URM) faculty, students and other severely underrepresented people of color groups.

Major products to be produced include: a book on the lived experiences of URM faculty, Must Read bibliographies on URM scholars, women and effective practices and a guidebook for administrators of higher education on effective and responsive practices for recruitment, retention and promotion of URM early career scholars.
