Best Practices for Faculty Recruitment

Lehigh ADVANCE hosts this toolbox of resources to enhance Faculty Recruitment Processes, Practices and the diversity of the outcomes, with special attention paid to issues of interdisciplinary faculty.

We have and will continue to have university-wide and department specific focused discussions, workshops, and resources on recruitment. Some materials were developed through hard work at other ADVANCE institutions and used with permission (at times they have been modified to be Lehigh Specific).

EVALUATING CANDIDATES AND THE CAMPUS INTERVIEW

It is a best practice to have a neutral pair of people not involved in evaluating the candidate to have 30 minutes on the itinerary where the candidate can ask additional questions and the university resources for diversity and faculty success can be shared.
