Equal Opportunity and the Academic Resources Department are again partnering to offer several 60-minute training sessions designed to address challenges that may impact faculty search committees. This training is required for all search committee chairs at least once every two years; all other search committee members are strongly encouraged to attend.

The covered topics include:

  • Using PeopleAdmin, UNT’s electronic faculty applicant tracking system to make the work of the committee easier and more efficient
  • Best practices for attracting a diverse and inclusive pool of highly qualified candidates
  • Ways to ensure a consistent and fair process.
  • Appropriate and inappropriate questions to ask candidates in furtherance of UNT’s commitment to diversity and inclusion
