Diversity Hiring Initiatives

Herman Eure

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, including a list of links found in “Tips for Inclusive Recruitment.” You will find guidance on diversifying your applicant pool and enhancing the on-campus interview. ODI’s website also includes promising practices, readings and tools for making the recruitment process more inclusive and equitable.

You may also find The Mellon Mays Undergraduate FellowsProgram – Search Tools for Fellows on the Job Market helpful; it allows for targeted recruitment of candidates from underrepresented groups across disciplines.

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. Chairs should contact Erica Still, Associate Dean for Faculty Recruitment, Diversity and Inclusion to discuss specific hiring initiatives and possibilities.
