QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER
JUNE 2016

Greetings <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

Welcome to the NCID's Quarterly Newsletter! We continued our work on strategic planning for diversity, hosted a convening for our Diversity Scholars Network, and are releasing a book on "Transforming Understandings of Diversity in Higher Education."
STRATEGIC PLANNING FOR DIVERSITY
AN NCID INSIGHT PAPER 

In the past year, the University of Michigan has undergone a strategic planning process to improve our campus climate and representation of identities across the spectrum. In the past two weeks, Brown announced a $100 million investment into diversity, Boston College held their first diversity summit, and Missouri invested in a $1.1 million diversity audit. Strategic diversity planning is taking many forms, while beginning to change the face of higher education.
As a part of our Insight Papers series, "Strategic Planning for Diversity in Higher Education" translates recent research on planning into concise and highly impactful form to guide practice. Drawing upon knowledge gained from the diversity planning at the universities of Maryland - College Park, Wisconsin - Madison, and Michigan State, this paper details a model for interpreting knowledge about campus climate and planning for diversity.
DIVERSITY SCHOLARS NETWORK
THE FUTURE OF DIVERSITY RESEARCH
In May, the NCID invited members of our Diversity Scholars Network to discuss the Future of Diversity Research. Over 50 scholars joined us at the University of Michigan to discuss scholarship for social change and explore collaborations among the Network. 

To review the convening program click here, proceedings coming soon.
COMING: JULY 2016
A DIVERSITY SCHOLARS
NETWORK COLLABORATION


As part of the "Engaged Research and Practice for Social Justice in Education" series, members of our Diversity Scholars Network jointly wrote and edited a new volume addressing the question: What do we mean when we talk in a serious way about “diversity”?

In Transforming Understandings of Diversity in Higher Education, leading scholars and practitioners explore how we've understood diversity historically and contemplate how our narratives have changed and will continue to change. 
Michelle Samura discusses Chapter 9 of the book, "Architecture of Diversity."

FEATURED SCHOLARS
Dr. Angela Bahns - an assistant professor at Wellesley - researches how similarity and difference in social networks impacts the formation and solidification of prejudice, providing critical insight into how intergroup relations can be structured to promote equity and inclusion. Dr. Bahns recently recorded a segment with the Academic Minute discussing how people in relationships don't change each other over time.
Dr. Jerlando Jackson, professor and director of Wisconsin's Equity & Inclusion Laboratory, studies organizational science and uses it as a tool to understand how diverse bodies and thought can be represented in higher education. He was recently quoted discussing the centrality of faculty governance in guiding the Wisconsin system.
