The most recent University Strategic Plan for 2006 - 2009 reiterates the University's commitment to 'uncompromising integrity, with imagination and pride evident in every aspect of our work.' Thus, the goal of this tutorial, sponsored by the ADVANCE-IT Program is to provide search committees with the research-based best-practices tools they need to recruit a diverse faculty...
The purpose of this guidebook is to assist faculty in improving merit-based hiring processes and to address unconscious bias to improve reliability and validity of the interview process.
This toolkit was written to assist Department Chairs in retaining their faculty across all ranks. These best practices should be applied to all faculty, not just the stars of a department. Retention efforts, when applied equitably to all faculty, can improve the general climate for everyone and can lead to better productivity and greater satisfaction for all faculty.
