Searches will not be allowed to go forward unless all of the members of the committee have participated in a training workshop by the time the Meets Minimum Qualifications list is submitted to the Office for Access and Equity. It is strongly recommended that heads and chairs whose departments are undertaking searches also do the training.
This training aligns with UIC’s strategic priority that states: “We will intensify our efforts to retain and recruit top-tier faculty members committed to the mission of our University. We will continue to nurture an open and friendly environment that celebrates diversity and promotes excellence.”
After participating in the workshop, one may serve on search committees for three years without retaking the training. Anyone who registered and participated in a workshop after February 1, 2017, has satisfied this requirement.
The search committee training is the product of the work of a very dedicated and collaborative group of faculty and administrators, with particular assistance from faculty from WISEST and the UIC Faculty Equity Committee who brought great research knowledge and practical experience to this endeavor.
