FACULTY SEARCH PROCESS TRAINING

The Faculty Diversity Officer and the Faculty Diversity Coordinator, conduct training sessions throughout the year for faculty search process training:

 

Interrupting Bias during the Faculty Search Process

This session, required for all faculty and staff members participating on faculty search committees, explores barriers within the faculty search process that prevent the fair evaluation of underrepresented candidates. Former participants will be required to attend a brief 30-minute refresher session if they have not attended the full training within the last two calendar years.

 

Standing sessions of the full presentation are available every second Friday (9:00 - 10:30 am) and every fourth Tuesday (3:30 - 5:00 pm) of the month in Adelbert Hall M2. Standing refresher sessions are held on the second Friday of every month (10:30 - 11:00 am) in Adelbert Hall M2.

 

For questions, please contact Donna Davis Reddix, Faculty Diversity Officer, at 216.368.4299 or donna.davis@case.edu.

 

Successfully Executing the Faculty Search Process

This session, required for all administrators tasked with completing Affirmative Action forms, explains the process of posting ads for open faculty positions to meet OFCCP and university Affirmative Action requirements.


The session is scheduled upon request by contacting Karyn Newton, Faculty Diversity Coordinator, at 216.368.2532 or kmn4@case.edu.
