Series note: Building on our recent profiling of the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 Ford Fellows at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, we are pleased to share with you the first of our four Ford Fellow Roundtables.
The Ford Foundation, through its fellowship programs seeks to increase diversity in our nation’s colleges and universities. I recently sat down with our current Ford Dissertation Fellows to discuss what diversity means to them. Through their discussion, we learn that thoughtful engagement with the question of what is diversity animates their work as educators and scholars.
