Supporting Faculty Inclusive Excellence, III: Equitable Evaluation of RPT Dossiers
Based on University of Michigan’s STRIDE (Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence), this series focuses on how certain criteria effectively exclude certain faculty; the role of schemas and implicit bias in the review of a candidate’s performance; and bias in a variety of domains (e.g., the grants application process, student evaluations, evaluation letters). The program addresses how the accumulation of these issues creates advantages and disadvantages among certain groups of faculty. Finally, it presents research on how parental or other types of leave can negatively impact the evaluation of faculty members.
