Project Description 

As Pitt embarks on a cluster-hiring initiative, it is imperative that we work to change the culture to one of inclusive excellence. To do this, we will create a Getting Connected Series, open to all faculty of color, where we will focus on Careers in Academia, Leadership, and Community Building. We will also form Learning Communities with new faculty hires to explore the issues raised during the Getting Connected Series, practice new skills learned, and address any challenges. By providing opportunity to meet the leadership, form communities, and connect to the university CIE-PRO will contribute to creating an inclusive culture.
