Augusta University faces a challenge of diversity when it comes to their teachers. The university works to address this issue by recruiting more male teachers of color. Kristy Brown, the director of assessment and accreditation, says it's important that every student has someone in the classroom that looks like them. 

Brown says 20 percent of teachers are people of color and of that number only 2 percent are men. She continues when people of color make up over half the student population, that's a problem when those numbers don't reflect each other. 

Brown says, “It doesn’t mean that every person needs to look like them but we know that mirrors are important in the profession of teaching we don’t have enough mirrors for our students.”

The university will host a summit on March 30. Their goal is to create an action plan to recruit and retain more male teachers of color.
