Excellence in Faculty Recruitment

Search committee chairs, committee members, and others involved in, or responsible for, faculty recruitment are encouraged to engage with the session facilitators in a critical inquiry on enhancing excellence in faculty recruitment. This facilitated discussion will create opportunities to become aware of scholarly research on faculty recruitment and will encourage participants to share individual experiences of successes and challenges in conducting successful faculty search processes across academic disciplines. Discussion topics will include an overview of the faculty recruitment cycle; merit and how it relates to equity and diversity; advertising the position; shortlisting; interviews; the potential for unconscious bias and strategies to reduce them; how scholarly research can inform recruitment practices; and moving beyond theory and discussion to enhancing our recruitment practices.
