About Emerging Scholars:
Diverse, then Black Issues In Higher Education, first published its “Emerging Scholars” edition in 2001. It has remained one of the magazine’s most popular editions since its inception. Diverse editors select honorees from a pool of candidates recommended by various scholars, department chairs, university public information officers and others.
Each scholar is selected based on research, educational background, publishing record, teaching record, competitiveness in field of study and uniqueness of field of study. Each leader selected has demonstrated perseverance, tenacity and has made a broad impact on the academy.
The announcement of the 2021 Class of Emerging Scholars will take place in the January 21, 2021 edition of Diverse. We request that news organizations and higher education media outlets do not report this story until that date.
For more than three decades, Diverse: Issues In Higher Education has been America’s premier source of timely news, provocative commentary, insightful interviews and in-depth special reports on diversity in higher education. Savvy individuals who appreciate the crucial and ever-changing role that higher education plays in the lives of students, professionals, their families and their communities make reading Diverse a regular habit.
