We commit to increasing the diversity of our faculty, staff, and students. Increasing diversity is central to achieving a more inclusive campus. Without sufficient diversity, some individuals risk isolation, alienation, excessive service, burnout, and less than full inclusion.

Ivy Plus Pathways to the Academy Consortium
The University recognizes that our commitment to a diverse professoriate cannot be limited to the faculty of the University of Chicago alone, but must instead look outward to the academy as a whole. Administrative leaders from the Ivy League and other leading research universities are developing a cross-institutional approach to increasing diversity in the American academy.
