Stonehill is committed to hiring faculty members who will bring complementary areas of expertise and perspectives to their departments and the Stonehill community.  Stonehill’s commitment to diversifying the faculty is made explicit and translated into action by implementing the new standard hiring and retention policies that are spelled out in this guide. These policies are meant to ensure that we make every reasonable effort to recruit, hire and retain diverse faculty.  Along with these hiring policies, Stonehill is also committed to strengthening current faculty development and implementing new initiatives so that all newly hired faculty members are mentored and supported to become successful members of the Stonehill community.
