STRIDE Workshop on Faculty Recruitment for Diversity and Excellence
On April 29th, 2013, two members of the University of Michigan ADVANCE STRIDE* Committee visited MSU to present a workshop on Faculty Recruitment for Diversity and Excellence. This presentation was designed to provide information and advice about practices that will maximize the likelihood that diverse, well-qualified candidates for faculty positions will be identified and, if selected for offers, successfully recruited. The workshop provides both background information and concrete advice about practices that make searches more successful in producing diverse candidate pools and hiring the candidates you want to attract.

First Lecture Introduction Program
Based on similar programs developed at other ADVANCE universities, our program aims to support new women faculty in the classroom and enhance their experience of autonomy, competence and relatedness, by explicitly communicating to students on the first day of class that they are fortunate to be on the receiving end of scholarly and pedagogical excellence. The First Lecture Introduction requires having a respected authority figure take just thirty seconds to introduce a new faculty member, and to convey to students that they are in good hands with this valued expert. We encourage Department Heads/Chairs or Deans to come to the classroom and make this introduction for all new faculty, but especially junior women faculty in STEM/SBS.
