Diversifying the Academy

Yesterday the American Academy for the Advancement of Science released a handbook on the legal framework for increasing diversity in higher education.

While most universities understand the need for considering diversity in the recruitment process, the path to hiring can be lined with legal potholes. This comprehensive guide establishes what criteria hiring committees may take into account in their efforts to attract a diverse pool of candidates.

It’s helpful to know that considering a job candidate’s record in fostering an inclusive work environment falls within the bounds of appropriate behavior. All hiring committees can benefit from thinking of ways beyond the quantitative to measure candidates’ value.
