STRIDE

STRIDE Requirement

The faculty committee on Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Increase Diversity and Excellence (STRIDE) is again offering Faculty Recruitment Workshops for faculty members serving on search committees.  These workshops are designed to provide them with both background information and concrete advice about practices that make searches more successful (in producing diverse candidate pools and hiring the candidates you want to attract). Faculty members planning to attend a session must register to reserve a space.

Attendance is required once every three years for faculty serving on search committees. A list of attendees that have met the requirement is available here. Search committee members do NOT have to come as a group; feel free to sign up for a workshop at a time convenient to you.   If you remember coming previously and are not on the list, that means it is time for you to renew your attendance.

Equal Opportunity and Diversity Programs (EODP) Requirement

All search committee members must attend the EODP training EACH year they are on a search committee. For your convenience, EODP Director Shirlyon McWhorter and her staff will provide the EODP training during the first 30 minutes at each workshop. You are welcome to sign up for STRIDE and only attend the EODP part if you have already met the STRIDE requirement. You may also arrange an EODP training for your committee on your own. Please contact: 305-348-2785.

Please register here if you wish to enroll in a STRIDE workshop. Nine identical workshops are scheduled for this fall term; these nine workshops are open to all faculty serving on search committees. A tenth workshop (scheduled for Friday, November 4) is only open to faculty who have previously attended a STRIDE Faculty Recruitment Workshop. Please contact advance@fiu.edu with any questions.
