In these challenging times, the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities has had a year it can be proud of.

The NSF-funded Envisioning and Enacting an Inclusive and Diverse STEM Professoriate Framing the Dialogue for Systemic Equity Reform in STEM Faculty Careers report advances three big ideas we believe are essential for a national dialogue on systemic reform for equity in STEM faculty careers: 1) Tracing, Addressing, and Dismantling Systemic Inequities in STEM Faculty Careers; 2) Tracking in STEM Faculty Careers; and, 3) Broadening the Bar: Redefining What Counts in Hiring and Evaluation. We believe that engagement with these key ideas across the entire faculty career ecosystem (including institutions of higher education, funding agencies, disciplinary societies, publishers, and other external actors) will help to lay the foundation for building consensus towards key equity-advancing transformation in STEM faculty careers.

In the two years since a national emergency was declared due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our nation’s colleges and universities have worked tirelessly to guide students and campus communities through the resulting public health and economic crises. This federal support has been instrumental in helping institutions navigate the changing conditions these past two years, protect public health, support students, and chart a course forward for campus communities.

For institutions seeking transformational change of any kind, understanding how to be responsive to external stakeholders must be a core focus. In this case, the state of Florida adopted a performance-based funding model to determine funding for institutions. It is important to consider how shifting the funding model of a university may present challenges to sustaining an institutional change agenda.

Higher education mergers elicit different reactions from stakeholders for many reasons. Few institutions follow a premeditated plan and consider the impacts a merger will have on the involved institutions’ internal and external stakeholders. Mergers, undoubtedly, present risks and costs to the newly consolidated institution’s capacity to transform. Therefore, it is vital for the stakeholders who guide a merger to set a positive tone for the faculty, staff, and community.

For institutions seeking transformational change of any kind, leadership must be a core focus. Senior leaders set tone and vision for student success and wield considerable influence over the operations of the institution. Meanwhile, turnover in executive leadership may present challenges to sustaining a transformative change agenda.
