Effective Search Practices Workshops
CU-ADVANCE Center and Cornell Interactive Theatre Ensemble (CITE)
"Effective Search Practices II: The Interview"
CU-ADVANCE's training DVD on Academic Interviewing includes three scenarios of on-campus faculty interview interactions. Together with a senior HR consultant, the Center developed a workshop that stimulates a discussion about the behaviors, perspectives, assumptions and biases of search committee members and faculty in these scenarios; they highlight the possible impacts on the candidate, department, and institution. Issues addresed are related to procedures and policies, legal boundaries, and department and institutional climate.
