Faculty & Staff

The Division of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion promotes multi-cultural awareness through educational collaborations with faculty and staff to train students for ethical leadership for a diverse and globally competitive workforce.

Faculty Search Committee Training

In Spring 2019, the Office of Institutional Diversity began offering a voluntary half-day Faculty Search Committee Workshop for all faculty search committee members. Unfortunately, due to precautions taken to avoid the spread of COVID-19, the workshops have temporarily been suspended.

In place of the half-day workshop, OID has put together an online Faculty Search Committee training video featuring Graduate School Dean Mark Sheridan addressing issues of inherent bias and Associate Dean of the Honors College Dr. Aliza Wong discussing Group and Power Dynamics in the Faculty Hiring Process.

The training video is accessible on HR's new training website, Cornerstone, and can be found here – under the "Faculty Search Committee Training" tab.

The training lasts approximately 30 minutes.

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Ruiz, Lead Administrator, at paul.ruiz@ttu.edu or at (806) 834-5415.
