The diversity challenge facing universities
Science 2.0
Recently, MIT released a report that closely examines the state of diversity within the university. The report considers MIT's diversity not just in terms of students and faculty, but also looks at the Institute's non-faculty research staff who represent approximately 28 percent of the institution as a whole.
