STRIDE

Committee on Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence is a faculty-led group that provides peer-to-peer training on the ways that overt discrimination, implicit bias, accumulated advantage and disadvantage, and the influence of gender and racial schema have inhibited the recruitment and hiring of underrepresented minority faculty. STRIDE also provides guidance on best practices that will maximize the likelihood that diverse candidates for faculty positions will be identified, recruited, and hired at UMBC. The Committee leads workshops for faculty and administrators involved in every stage of the hiring process. It also works directly with individual departments by meeting with chairs, faculty search committees, and other department members involved with recruitment and hiring.
