STRIDE Faculty Recruitment Workshops

To better support faculty searches, the Office of Equity and Inclusion launched STRIDE (Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence) faculty recruitment workshops in fall 2018. 

View a preview of the workshop here. 
Please note: this is not the full presentation. Complete handouts of the presentation will be emailed to participants after the workshop.

These workshops are intended for faculty members with an important role in faculty recruitment efforts (e.g., search committee chairs and members, and other key faculty). This two-hour training reviews research driven best practices to recruit for diversity and excellence across every stage in the search process and is designed to help faculty produce diverse candidate pools and run effective searches by: 

  1. Getting great applications from the best applicants
  2. Developing a strong short list
  3. Managing the visit
  4. Choosing and attracting the best candidate.
