Hi Karen, I worked with you last year on job docs and scored three campus visits. In meeting with the deans and provosts in these visits, I was told that the position would be a diversity hire. As an African-American woman, I was delighted only to see the jobs go to white males from Ivies. So, does pedigree trump hiring goals? Even in institutions where the majority of students are minorities (i.e. historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving institutions)?
