Across America, colleges and universities have appropriated the language of diversity as a way of signaling their commitment to faculty and students of color. This article argues that language of diversity and efforts to implement diversity are bound to fail in the absence of an institutional commitment to incorporating strategies for diversity into their research, teaching, and service missions. The research for this article relies heavily on interviews with African American, American Indian, Asian, and Latino faculty members, of junior status, in predominantly White colleges and universities.
