Diversifying the Faculty
Shattering the Silences (distributed by Resolution Inc./California Newsreel)
This 90-minute documentary video explores issues of faculty diversity in American higher education in the mid-1990s, focusing on the experiences of eight minority scholars in the humanities and social sciences at a wide range of institutions. The program illustrates ways in which teaching and research by these scholars — who are Asian-American, African-American, Native American, and Latino — affect students, university communities, and the academic disciplines in which they work. The Web site gives an overview of the film, the scholars involved, and resources for students, faculty, and adminstrators in higher education, as well as for high school students, parents, and counselors.
