for open positions across all departments The Director for Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Office of Equity and Diversity analyzed our staff hiring process identified gaps and proposed significant revisions with the goal of creating a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects our student population and models our educational aspirations These revisions also address barriers to that goal by standardizing objective candidate evaluation diversifying search committees and designating diversity advocates to serve on staff search committees Candidate evaluation will include assessment of candidate s ability to foster an inclusive workplace We have already made progress on the faculty side with further advances to be made over this annual search cycle We have piloted language in a number of faculty ads that strongly encourages candidates to describe their strengths and experiences in teaching diverse student populations and in promoting a diverse and inclusive educational environment Based on successful experiences in the piloted searches this year the Dean s Advisory Council plans to make such language standard for all faculty searches moving forward Status Complete June 29 2015 The job description project is being implemented Descriptions now include the ability to foster an inclusive workplace as an essential competency for every staff

including revising the GE requirement so it reflects the original proposal where there are discussions about international relations imperialism privilege political conversations about studying abroad

curricular reform The Academic Affairs Board AAB has discussed diversity in the curriculum twice including with the University Professors of the Core program The AAB will continue to work on these issues 11 that we hire and retain more faculty across aspects of minority identities as noted above from both domestic and international backgrounds and that we actively create the conditions for them
