Resources for faculty, staff and student diversity in higher education

Diversity Statements and Statistics

President's Diversity Council 2016This library guide was created to support the University’s goal to increase the diversity of faculty, staff and students. Resources listed on this guide have been selected to assist in the recruiting and hiring process as well as aid instructors and students with promoting diversity in the classroom.

We welcome your suggestions for additional items to be added to this library guide. Please join the discussion board in the left column to participate in the conversation about diversity and multicultural education at Wichita State or make suggestions about this guide.

The University's strategic plan strives in part to:

     -- Pioneer an educational experience for all that integrates interdisciplinary curricula across the university

     -- Empower students to create a campus culture and experience that meets their changing needs

     -- Be a campus that reflects - in staff, faculty and students - the evolving diversity of society
