Diversity Advocates

The Diversity Advocate Program is a pilot program for tenure-line searches in STEM and the social behavioral sciences, which will be rolled out for all searches over the next three years.

Diversity advocates will help with extra recruitment efforts aimed at direct and personal contact, encourage the committee to utilize best practices in evaluating diverse applicant pools, and guide the committee to make certain that the search process is free of bias or stereotyping of applicants in verbal or written communication, ensures that candidates are evaluated fairly, and provides similar opportunities for each candidate and follows interview procedures that treat all applicants consistently.
