The Handbook on Diversity and the Law: Navigating a Complex Landscape to Foster Greater Faculty and Student Diversity in Higher Education is a comprehensive handbook for college and university administrators that provides practical, actionable guidance on how to design effective, legally compliant programs that advance diversity. Originally produced in 2010 with the help of a Sloan Foundation grant, the Handbook needs an update that reflects the myriad changes to the legal landscape since its publication. This grant to the American Association for the Advancement of Science provides funding for that purpose.   The Handbook on Diversity and the Law Edition 2 will add descriptions and analyses of recent court and agency decisions and changes to federal policy; provide new suggestions for process management, governance, structural barrier removal, and communications; and operationalize these resources through new user-friendly tools and training materials.
