Faculty Excellence and Diversity



Faculty Excellence and Diversity Initiative

"Yale’s education and research missions are propelled forward by a faculty that stands at the forefront of scholarship, research, practice, mentoring, and teaching. An excellent faculty in all of these dimensions is a diverse faculty, and that diversity must reach across the whole of Yale—to every school and to every department." 

Peter Salovey, President
Ben Polak, Provost


In November 2015, President Peter Salovey and Provost Ben Polak announced that Yale would contribute more than $50 million in resources to build on the excellence and diversity of our faculty, university-wide. The Faculty Development and Diversity team is responsible for implementing this initiative.
