Student Voices: Why Faculty Diversity?

Why is faculty diversity important to a top research university like Stanford? In addition to providing a breadth of interests and perspectives to our research and teaching, faculty diversity is important to our students. This video captures - in their own words - the views of students from groups underrepresented in higher education: students from underrepresented minority groups and women students in science, math, and engineering. The video also incorporates comments on research in this field from Stanford School of Education Dean Claude Steele and closing remarks from President John Hennessy.
