University leaders know that a diverse faculty body is essential to excellence in research, teaching, service, and patient care. A diverse faculty contributes to a climate of inclusion on campus and promotes research on a wide variety of topics applicable to individuals from all backgrounds. Having a diverse faculty also encourages the ascension of diverse leaders to senior administrative positions. Although universities have a vested interest in diversifying their faculty, many universities struggle to achieve diversity goals – despite their best efforts. This webinar will explore evidence-based practices for faculty hiring as well as promising practices that could benefit from further testing. The webinar hosts will also share information about an upcoming project to pilot these promising practices, with the goal of improving evidence for strategies that work.
