Abstract

This chapter describes the perspectives of 19 faculty members at a newly designated top-tier research institution with a high degree of student diversity on Schein's cultural levels: artifacts and espoused beliefs and values in relation to diversity and inclusion. In spite of the selected institution having a highly diverse student body, faculty experienced the organizational culture similarly to faculty at PWIs, highlighting that compositional diversity is not enough for transforming institutions into inclusive spaces. Rather, this chapter highlights how governance structures, decision-making practices, hiring practices, and leadership play an important role in shaping the experiences of faculty. Recommendations are provided for organizational leaders and human resources to create supportive work environments for faculty of color.
