Faculty Recruitment and Retention

Faculty Equity Advisors serve as a resource to ensure equity and inclusion in faculty searches, support and success.

  • Provide advice as needed to the chair/dean and to the search committee to ensure that diversity is being considered and that proactive and inclusive search practices are used for recruiting and selecting new faculty. The President’s and Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Programs have particularly attractive pools.
  • Review the demographic diversity of the availability pool, the applicant pool, the candidates selected for interviews, and the faculty in the academic unit. Equity Advisors must approve the search plan, applicant pool and short list, and sign off on the final search report. When necessary, provide advice and support to the search committee and/or consult with the Office for Faculty Equity and Welfare and the Vice Chancellor for Equity & Inclusion to help ensure that diversity and equity are fully considered in the hiring process.
  • Be available to consult with faculty on how to effectively present the diversity work they may have done in their merit/promotion cases (see APM 210-d).
