Valuable Tips for Recruiting and Retaining Black Faculty

The American Historical Association recently released a document entitled Equity for Minority Historians in the Academic History Workplace: A Guide to Best Practices. The document issues guidelines to history departments at colleges and universities on how they can take steps to increase diversity in their faculty ranks.

The recommendations offer a good overall blueprint that can be used to help recruit and retain minority faculty. And the guidelines will be useful not just to history departments but to almost any academic field at a university looking to increase racial diversity among its faculty.
