Program Description

LSA offers its students an outstanding undergraduate education in the liberal arts at a premier research institution, and is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive scholarly environment.

The College seeks early career scholars whose research, and/or teaching, and/or service will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with a demonstrated interest in bringing to their teaching/mentoring or research the critical perspectives that come from nontraditional educational backgrounds and pathways, and/or scholarly understanding of the experiences of groups who are historically underrepresented or marginalized in higher education.
