SUNY Faculty Diversity Program

Thank you to HELI 2016 alum Dr. Óscar F. Gil-García for sharing this opportunity with us!

The State University of New York (SUNY) Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) is pleased to announce the Faculty Diversity Program (FDP) for the 2019-2020 academic year.  The program is budgeted to provide partial salary support to SUNY state-operated campuses for a limited number of new assistant professor level appointments.  The purpose of this program is to advance diversity and inclusive excellence by encouraging the recruitment, retention and promotion of outstanding scholars from different backgrounds, including individuals from groups who have historically been underrepresented in higher education.

The Faculty Diversity Program is limited strictly to new, full-time, tenure-track appointments at the assistant professor level; existing appointments will not be considered.

The deadline for nominations is November 16, 2018.  Please mail five hard copies of the dossier to Ms. Barbara Hardman, Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, State University of New York, State University Plaza, T1100A, Albany, NY 12246.

Due to the level of competition and large volume of nominations associated with this program, incomplete dossiers will be disqualified.  Applications received after the deadline will not be considered. Due to budgetary constraints, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will only solicit one round of nominations during this academic year.

For procedural questions, please contact the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at (518) 320-1189.
