"...I intervene in a really active area of social science research that has advanced the claim that diversity has negative consequences for things like trust and cooperation. Basically, research doesn’t often meet the burden of proof to make that kind of claim. And this has gone unnoticed because there is a lot of confusion around the term “diversity.” Often, we will say “diversity,” when actually what we mean and what we measure is something else, something that is not really diversity at all; it’s just the presence of non-whites."
A key component of Columbia’s ongoing commitment to maintaining a diverse and thriving faculty body is the Provost’s Grants Program for Junior Faculty Who Contribute to the Diversity Goals of the University. The ten faculty members below are the Fall 2018 recipients of the Junior Faculty Diversity Grants program.
