Diversity and Inclusion in Search and Appointment Procedures

For all appointments to the Faculty, the President will require evidence of steps taken to establish a nondiscriminatory and fully representative applicant pool from which appointment will then be made on the basis of individual merit. To this end, Chairs of departments and committees authorized to search are asked to consult with the Special Assistant to the President for Diversity concerning the language and placement of advertising for all faculty positions and to submit a brief summary of the applicant pool to the Dean of the Faculty when they recommend a particular candidate for appointment. All candidates for faculty positions are given an opportunity to meet with the Special Assistant to the President for Diversity.
