NEBHE has recently adopted a reparative justice framework to promote faculty equity in the region. Unlike DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) efforts, reparative justice centers BIPOC faculty, focuses on repairing past harms, stopping present harm, and preventing the reproduction of harm. We organize our reparative justice framework around Three Pillars: (I) Transformation, (II) Restoration, and (III) Nourish and Uplift. NEBHE’s goal is to create a shared, regional vision or blueprint around this framework and provide resources for institutions wanting to embark on faculty equity and those already engaged in the work.
NEBHE aims to lead the region in these efforts, and, to that end, we are working to promote Pillar III “Nourish and Uplift” by developing a series of new initiatives to support BIPOC faculty. We call these faculty initiatives the North Star Collective (NSC). Our first initiative, a fellowship program, will provide a nourishing community of care, mentorship, and professional development for BIPOC early career faculty.
