The Applied Diversity Science Initiative (ADSI) represents a

and scholarship focused on identifying and overcoming challenges
related to diversity, climate, and inclusion in organizations. This
initiative is primarily funded by grants and contracts from the
organizations we service, with support from the Department of
What We Do

We seek to use theories and data to gauge and improve the
effectiveness of programs to help them achieve their diversity and

typically receive a stipend in support of their ADSI
- Faculty Fellows are faculty with research expertise in
diversity-related topics, or topics unrelated to diversity
but with expertise in the practical application of
theoretical approaches. These individuals are not
compensated, but may be approached for opportunities to
consult on existing projects or participate in workshops,
some of which may be compensated.
