Affirmative Action Search Advocate Program-Part I

The Affirmative Action Search Advocates (AASA) are process experts serving on search committees to enhance the quality of OSU search and selection efforts.  The 2-part AASA workshop series prepares you to help search committee members recognize and address potential bias risks, outlines strategies you can use to improve the validity and fairness of any search process, and suggests ways you can promote diversity throughout a search.  OSU employees who complete both workshops may be eligible to attend an optional week-long seminar in 2011.

Additional Information
Individuals interested in serving in this role are invited to attend a two-part seminar addressing the specific affirmative action concerns that arise at each stage of the search process.  Both Part I and Part II must be completed in order to serve as an AASA on a university committee.  All Provost's Initiative and Tenured Faculty Diversity Initiative search committees require a tenured search advocate from outside the hiring unit before the search opens; the first task for committee and advocate is to develop/revise the final position announcement for posting.
