AA Search Advocate Series - Session 1 of 2 (click here for description)

Description

Search Advocates are process advisors who serve as external search committee members (not in their own departments/disciplines) to enhance diversity, validity, and equity in university search and selection.  To become a search advocate, you must complete the two-part workshop series; please register separately for Session 2.  Each session goes from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm and includes a catered breakfast beginning at 8 am, and a catered lunch (part of which may be working).  Topics include current research, theory, and practical strategies to help search committees test their thinking, address complex process concerns, improve search validity and equity, understand/promote diversity, mitigate conflicts of interest, and anticipate/address a variety of other potential bias risks.

We recommend that the search advocate join the search committee to help develop/review/revise the position description and qualifications before the job is posted, and participate actively throughout the search and selection process until the search is closed out and the new appointee joins the hiring unit.

When you complete both sessions of the training, you will be eligible to join a search committee as search advocate until September 2020, should you so choose.  Completing the training does not require you to serve as a search advocate; you can decide whether to be active in the program at the end of the workshop, or any time afterwards.  To remain eligible beyond August of 2020, you will be expected to engage in a modest continuing education program which will be explained in Session II.
