Best Practices for Inclusive Faculty Recruitment

NEXT TRAINING: Tuesday, February 16, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. Zoom link will be sent after you have registered for the workshop (must use UNCC login)

UNC Charlotte ADVANCE partners with The Council on University Community, The Office of Academic Budget and Personnel, Human Resources and The Office of Legal Affairs to lead Best Practices for Inclusive Faculty Recruitment Training. These workshops are designed to help faculty search committees share best practices to use in their searches, taking into consideration diversity strategies, so departments can conduct fair, inclusive, and effective searches, consistent with university and department goals.

In a survey of attendees of the face-to-face session, 84% who responded said they became more aware of potential bias in the search process. 

Inclusive Recruitment Training is a two part process, and is required of all faculty on a search committee:

The first part is an on-line session in Canvas, which covers forms, processes and other details. Search committee members will complete this on-line session each academic year they serve on a search committee.  Faculty can complete this session at their own pace, at a time they choose. There is a short quiz after the session, which faculty must take and receive a score of at least 70% before they have completed the on-line section of the training.

The second part is the face-to-face session, which search committee members are required to have completed within the past five years PRIOR to their service on a search committee.

Best Practices

New content has been added to the on-line training module, which is available on Canvas

One aspect of best practices is ensuring that diversity language is featured in job ads.  Language is one element that can contribute to attracting a diverse pool of qualified candidates.  Such language can include:

  • Experience with a variety of teaching methods and/or curricular perspectives
  • Previous experience interacting with communities of color or diverse student groups
  • Experience in cultures other than their own
  • Academic experiences and interests in culturally diverse groups
  • Interest in developing and implementing curricula that address multicultural issues
