The Offices for Faculty Affairs and Human Resources are collaborating with the Theater Department to hold an interactive workshop on Best Practices in Faculty Searches and Hiring.  Through exercises, discussions, and a live skit, participants will learn about new tools and resources for an efficient and effective search. Topics include: preparing the job announcement, recruiting a diverse pool of applicants, minimizing bias in the search process, evaluating candidates, requesting campus interviews, asking appropriate interview questions, avoiding informality during interviews, employing confidentiality, and documenting the search process. To learn more about the search process and provided resources, visit Human Resources’ Recruitment webpage.

NOTE: The purpose of this workshop is to share national best practices in faculty recruitment.  Human Resources will be announcing upcoming Workday training in the next few weeks.

Who should attend? Department chairs, search committee chairs, HR liaisons, business managers, and faculty serving on search committees are encouraged to attend. No registration is required.
