About Recruitment of Faculty at Lehigh University
The strongest predictor of success in recruiting women is the inclusion of women in search committees. The ADVANCE Center for Women faculty, in conjunction with the Dean of Faculties, is expanding existing gender bias training for all members of search committees, committees making decisions on tenure and promotion, and committees making decisions on university and college awards.
This activity is focused on highlighting the success of women STEM faculty. In collaboration with the Dean of Faculties office, the Women’s Faculty Network, the Women Engineering Faculty Interest Group, the Women Administrators Network, and the Vice President of Research, the ADVANCE Center for Women Faculty is organizing events to recognize and publicize the achievements of women faculty.
