The Faculty Council seeks to learn more about faculty perspectives on diversity in the School of Theology. We especially want to receive reflections on: (1) your overall experiences and observations of diversity in STH; (2) the areas in which you feel most competent in engaging diversity and (3) the areas in which you would appreciate fresh insights and guidance. We thus invite your self-reflection regarding the strengths and limits of the faculty, and the school in general, as regards diversity. Please complete the survey below, giving your honest personal reflections. Your personal data will not be recorded, so this is fully anonymous. The results will be shared with the faculty in the aggregate so we can learn more about ourselves.
