Search Committee Training
Recruiting and hiring people to work at the University of Idaho is one of our most important shared responsibilities. The university is committed to creating and maintaining an environment that is diverse, inclusive and free of discrimination. Beginning July 1, 2020, successful completion of the online Search Committee Training and Online Managing Unconscious Bias in Recruitment and Hiring is required to serve on all University of Idaho Search Committees. Successful completion of the training fulfills this requirement for 3 years from the date taken. After 3 years, employees will be asked to re-take the training.
The training takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. You will receive an email confirmation after completing each part, and your College/Administrative Area EO-AA Coordinator will be notified once you complete both parts.
The chapter outlines the U of I hiring process, the importance of a diverse search committee and applicant pool, proper interview procedures and guidelines and additional resources for active recruitment and hiring.
This chapter addresses stereotypical thinking and biases in the recruitment, hiring and promotion/tenure processes that may prevent the advancement of females, minorities, persons with disabilities and protected veterans.
