AAU/AAAS Handbook on “legally sustainable diversity programs”
http://www.aaas.org/news/releases/2010/0507diversity.shtml

With the help of an extensive appendix outlining key legal opinions, the handbook “provides examples of field-tested tools for diversifying faculties and student bodies,” Chubin said during the teleconference.
The tools expand the notion of diversity beyond race or gender, said Keith, by considering factors such as socioeconomic status and a person’s success in working with and fostering participation by people from a broad range of backgrounds.
With this new focus, she said, campus administrators can build diversity by recruiting people “who have either scaled barriers themselves or broken down barriers for others.”
