The Office of Intercultural Affairs provides information and resources to help guide LMU faculty, staff, and administrator search processes, including the 2019-20 Faculty Recruitment Boilerplate and customized workshops. LMU search process workshops will be customized to fit the needs of your unit. The two workshop topics include:
- prior to workshop. Results will not be shared with others, but the experience will be part of the discussion.
- Department-wide understanding of the search process and ways that implicit bias can impact candidate reviews at every stage, including candidate campus visits.
- Understanding of specific strategies to mitigate bias, along with handout of sample tools that may be adapted for a department’s needs.
- Understanding of Dean’s expectations for search, campus visit, and nature of departmental vote and written materials to be provided.
