The Office of the Provost has created a variety of new programs and tools to help recruit outstanding faculty to the University of Chicago. The Searching for Excellence training program is a 90-minute session providing concrete, actionable steps to improve the faculty search process with a focus on diversity, compliance, and affirmative action. Participants will learn about new practices, programs, funding, and other resources for faculty recruitment. The training is based on behavioral science research and best practices from the National Science Foundation ADVANCE program. All people who participate in the hiring process are strongly encouraged to attend. The training will be led by the Office of the Provost, the Office of Legal Counsel, and the Equal Opportunity Programs Office for Affirmative Action.
