Almost a year after the “Silence is Still Violence” march, Boston College is staring down several obstacles that stand in the way of a more diverse and representative faculty, but according to figures, BC has one of the most diverse faculties of its peer schools.
Over the summer, Boston College hired 43 new faculty members, according to Vice Provost for Faculties Billy Soo. Twenty-one men and 22 women were hired, and of the entire group, 12 are AHANA+. In terms of visiting faculty, 25 new members were hired: 13 males and 12 females. Of that group, six are AHANA+.
“You have to be careful in bringing in new faculty, because once you commit to them, they could be here 30, 40 years,” said Vice Provost of Faculties Billy Soo.
With many professors retiring, the Lynch School of Education is set to hire nine new faculty members within the next three years.
