It's All in What You Ask: Questions for Search Committees To Use.
Sandler, Bernice R.; And Others
A variety of questions are provided to assist college and university search committees to elicit useful information about candidates' concern about issues that affect women. Many of the questions can be adapted to apply to minority and disabled persons. Some are open-ended to draw out a candidate's opinions and attitudes. The questions are divided into three sections: general questions to ask both prospective administrators and faculty (on equity, informal support, and climate); questions appropriate for prospective administrators (on formal support, staffing, direct encouragement, and other issues); and questions appropriate for faculty candidates (on women's studies and campus environment).
