Campaign for College Opportunity
This brief discusses equity-minded faculty practices and provides resources to support equity-minded faculty hiring. It focuses on the four hiring practices that have been proven to contribute in a positive way to faculty diversity, including: (1) developing equity-minded hiring criteria; (2) equity-themed cluster hiring; (3) equity-minded teaching evaluation; and (4) equity-minded interviews. Practices that can be enacted before, during, and after the search process are highlighted, including aligning institutional and departmental commitments, forming search committees that are representative of diverse constituencies, and ensuring an environment of success for new hires. [Eileen and Harold Brown provided additional funding for this series of briefs.]
