Faculty Discuss Student Body Composition

The composition of the student body was the subject of discussion at the faculty meeting on Monday night, led by Jane Fried, Dean of Admissions. In a survey given to the faculty in November, they were asked to prioritize the category of admission recruitment they felt was most important. The categories were: racial/ethnic diversity, national diversity, international diversity, and socio-economic diversity. Faculty received an email from Fried last Thursday, prior to the meeting, reporting the results of the survey. The results of the survey indicated that faculty felt socio-economic diversity was the top priority, followed by racial/ethnic diversity, national diversity and then international diversity.
