Search Committee Training

Policy, OAE-1100-006, mandates search committee training for hiring officers and members of faculty and/or faculty/administrator search committees. The training was developed through a partnership among the Office for Access and Equity, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Engagement, and the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs. The goal of this training is to explain the search process, implicit bias, and stereotypes, as well as other issues that can affect the fairness of a search.

This training aligns with UIC’s strategic priority that states: “We will intensify our efforts to retain and recruit top-tier faculty members committed to the mission of our University. We will continue to nurture an open and friendly environment that celebrates diversity and promotes excellence.”

Please note: OAE will not approve Cornerstone Requisitions until all members of the committee have participated in a training workshop.

It is strongly recommended that heads and chairs whose departments are undertaking searches also attend the training.

Search Committee training is available in an e-learning format:
