Search Advocate Workshop - Session II - CORVALLIS

Description

Search Advocates are collaborative process experts who work with search committees to enhance the quality of university search and selection efforts.  The 2-part Search Advocate workshop series provides 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 Sessions I and II are eligible to serve as search advocates for the next 12 months on OSU search committees.   Search advocates are required for Provost's Hiring Initiative and Tenured Faculty Diversity Initiative tenure-track search committees, and for all searches in a growing number of academic colleges and administrative units.  The advocate's role begins with helping the search committee to develop/review/revise the final position description before it is approved for posting.

Session II addresses key bias risks/remedies during and after a search. The session includes a panel of current search advocates who describe their experiences in this role and answer questions.
