Division of People, Culture and Belonging Faculty Affiliates


The purpose of the Division of People, Culture and Belonging (formerly Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Faculty Affiliates is to support capacity building efforts focused on inclusion and the retention of marginalized faculty, staff and students. These efforts will support increased numbers of highly qualified faculty, staff and students to join and remain in the academy of teachers and scholars at Kent State University (KSU).  Faculty members with curiosity, passion, ideas, and leadership skills, and who are committed to serving others and strengthening KSU's diversity will be selected as associates.


In consultation with the Vice President for People, Culture and Belonging, Faculty Affiliates will work closely with DPCB and other supporting offices at KSU; will report to the Vice President for People, Culture and Belonging; and will spend time proportionate to their course release on activities related to the area of focus.

Special Note: Prior to the People, Culture and Belonging Faculty Affiliates, there was another robust yet similar program titled the Provost's Faculty Associates for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
