Panel at BSU Discusses Recruiting, Hiring, and Retaining Black Faculty Members


UPDATE: The student panel discussion for next Tuesday has been rescheduled. An update with the new date will be posted once information is received.

The Bemidji community joined in on a panel discussion at Bemidji State University on Tuesday that discussed ways on how to recruit, hire, and retain black faculty members at predominately white institutions in honor of Black History Month.

According to statistics in 2017, there are about 800,000 full time faculty members nationwide at predominantly white institutions, and about 24,000 of that number represented a minority group. The panel discussion included three African-American business professors that shared their experiences and views on why having diversity on BSU’s campus is important.
