PHHP DEI COMMITTEE EFFORTS

Equity Search Guide

PHHP is deeply invested in diversity, equity, and inclusion across the college. As one of our recent efforts, we developed this equity search guide, “Pathways to an Equitable Search,” to facilitate our search process for new faculty to join our college. This is a living document, as we are interested in continually improving and refining our process to ensure that we conduct equitable searches for new colleagues. These are guidelines and recommendations, following the best practices of the field and working in alignment with Human Resources strategies and legal expectations, that will be guided and facilitated by the equity search advisor role on each search committee.
