Additionally, members of our teaching faculty have been working closely with our Director of Diversity & Inclusion to work closely with students to identify and address diversity challenges in our department. As such, within the applicant teaching statement, we welcome a discussion of the candidate's experiences in establishing and maintaining supportive, inclusive environments for diverse student communities, and plans for being involved in diversity efforts at Penn.
