Search Advocate Training
The role of Search Advocate is intended to further advance OSU’s commitment to equal opportunity principles, affirmative action practices, and diversity values. Search Advocates learn to support search committees in avoiding unconscious, unintentional biases in the search process, and bring multiple strategies to advance diversity and affirmative action principles at each stage of the search/selection process. They fulfill this role by sharing information, asking questions, recommending inclusive/affirmative strategies, and occasionally consulting with the Office of Equity and Inclusion as needed to support the most effective search and selection practices, from development of the position description through integration of the new hire into the unit.
Individuals interested in serving in this role are invited to attend a two-part seminar addressing the specific concerns that arise at each stage of the search process. Both Part I and Part II must be completed in order to serve as Search Advocate on a university committee.
