  • Many researchers have noted that the next 10 years are crucial, because all of the faculty hired in the 1950s and 1960s are finally retiring. And if we don’t make significant progress in diversity, given this hiring opportunity, we will have missed a real window of opportunity to replaced another generation of faculty on college and university campuses.
