Search Advocate Full-Day Workshop - CORVALLIS

Description

Search Advocates are collaborative process experts who work with search committees to enhance the fairness, validity, and diversity of university search and selection efforts.  This full-day version of the Search Advocate Workshop is a professional development update on current theory, research, and practical strategies that advocates can use to help search committees test their thinking, address complex process concerns, improve search validity and fairness, understand/promote diversity, and anticipate/address potential bias risks.

Participants who complete the full-day workshop (or two half-day workshops, when the training is offered in that format) are eligible to serve as search advocates on OSU search committees.  Search advocates are required for Provost's Initiative and Tenured Faculty Diversity Initiative tenure-track search committees, beginning with the development/review/revision of final position descriptions before they are approved for positing.
