Diversity Hiring Initiatives

At Wake Forest, we are committed to having a diverse faculty that celebrates our different backgrounds and ideas. Our faculty and students come from all parts of the world, making our campus wonderfully global.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) has developed resources to assist you in the process of recruiting and hiring new colleagues (specifically on how to diversify the candidate pool and elevate the on-campus interview). These resources, in addition to The Mellon Mays Undergraduate FellowsProgram – Search Tools for Fellows on the Job Market, are designed to enhance your searches for qualified diverse faculty.

ODI’s resouces enhance and elevate the process of recruiting new colleagues. The resources appear as hyperlinks on the ODI Website, under the title “Tips for Inclusive Recruitment.” This particular website also includes promising practices, readings, and tools for making the recruitment process more inclusive and equitable.

ODI and the Office of the Dean of the College are committed to supporting your recruitment of new colleagues.  Please reach out to ODI and ODOC with any additional questions.
