The Consortium is committed to increasing the diversity of students, faculty members and curricular offerings at liberal arts colleges with a particular focus on enhancing the diversity of candidates for faculty positions. The Consortium was founded as an association of liberal arts colleges committed to strengthening under-represented minority groups by allowing them to complete their graduate programs and to consider faculty employment at liberal arts colleges. The Consortium currently has 52 member institutions. Applications are invited in all disciplines. Fellowship recipients must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents committed to and willing to contribute to enhancing the diversity of Consortium colleges and their faculties. Furthermore, candidates should have no more than five years of teaching or relevant experience before the starting date of the most recent fellowship.
Denison University is proud to host the 2018 consortium's annual conference. We welcome our guests to campus on September 21-22.
