Search Advocates

Program Details

The Search Advocates program enhances equity, validity, and diversity in university recruiting and hiring. Preparation includes an eight-hour workshop addressing current research about implicit bias, diversity, the changing legal landscape in hiring, inclusive employment practices, strategies for each stage of the search process, and effective ways to be an advocate on a search committee.

The search advocate plays a vital role in position development, recruitment, screening, interviews, references, evaluation, and integration of the new faculty or staff member into the institution.
