Georgia State must bring its institutional spirit of innovative programming to design, implement, and evaluate strategies that build diversity and inclusion, thereby further enriching the academic environment and inspiring even more members of our diverse student body. The Commission on the Next Generation of Faculty was tasked with proposing how the university might best approach this opportunity and offers five Transformative Recommendations, which are high priority actions that should lead to greater success at recruiting, engaging, and retaining a diverse faculty, as well as three Best Practice Initiatives, which are essential for Georgia State to become nationally recognized in diversity and inclusion. Each recommendation and initiative is intended to be implemented across all campuses.
