This week, Through the Gates host Jim Shanahan speaks with John Nieto-Phillips, IU associate vice provost for faculty development and diversity, on the challenge of increasing campus diversity among faculty and students. The conversation addresses a variety of nuances of student and faculty recruitment and touches on questions of competitive hiring, extra burdens on minority faculty, and implicit bias.
Nieto-Phillips is also an accomplished scholar whose work focuses on the transnational history of Latinx populations. His recent book, “Language of Blood,” focuses on how perceptions of Mexican-Americans in the southwest influenced how they entered the US body politic.
