Inclusive Excellence in Faculty Hiring Announcement
We are excited to inform you that the Division of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity has updated its search committee training module. This new online module is titled “Inclusive Excellence in Faculty Hiring”, and it replaces the current module, “Academic Hiring at Mizzou,” previously found on understand.missouri.edu.
The understand.missouri.edu website is no longer active, and the new module can be accessed via MyLearn or the Box site for external members of a search committee.
The “Inclusive Excellence in Faculty Hiring” module offers guidance on how to mitigate bias in faculty recruitment, and strategies to recruit and hire faculty who share our values of diversity and inclusion. The university community benefits from the perspectives of individuals from different backgrounds and experiences, with increased student engagement and retention, and enriched classroom discussions as some of the key outcomes.
