Diversity through the Disciplines - Dr Weiling

The Institute for Diversity, Equity, and Advocacy (IDEA) works to transform the University of Minnesota by enhancing the visibility and productivity of an interdisciplinary group of faculty and community scholars.

This group's expertise in equity, diversity, and underrepresented populations leads to innovative scholarship that addresses urgent social issues.

IDEA is also designed to enhance retention and faculty diversity by fostering stronger ties among and with faculty and the local community.

IDEA invites faculty to connect personally and professionally with others on campus and within the local community.

Resources include:

  • faculty research grants
  • sponsorship of symposia and lectures
  • faculty workshops
  • mentorship
  • professional development opportunities for junior American Indian faculty and faculty of color
