The faculty of a major, comprehensive university should reflect a composition similar to that of the larger society in which it exists and provide role models for students in underrepresented groups. TCU recruitment policies for faculty are designed to attract qualified individuals from underrepresented groups.

       Further, TCU faculty recruitment activities reflect an attention to:

1)      proactive identification of potential minorities and other underrepresented groups to insure a strong applicant pool;

2)     extraordinary recruitment efforts to insure favorable responses from minorities and other underrepresented groups; and finally

3)     explicit response to the market driven compensation differentials that have been created by the fierce competition among universities for highly qualified minorities and other individuals from underrepresented groups.
