You’re Invited!

Search SeminarThe University is promoting best practices among search committees to ensure schools continue to attract and retain distinguished and diverse faculty. The upcoming Faculty Search Seminar provides professional development for faculty in this area.  Because all faculty serve on search committees, all faculty are invited and encouraged to come.   All faculty administrators and HR & EOP professionals are also welcome!

As in past years, the UVa CHARGE Faculty Search Seminar promises to be a creative, engaging and informative event that provides professional development in the best practices for:

  • Faculty recruitment
  • Candidate evaluation
  • Mitigating implicit bias
  • Search committee dynamics  

The UVa CHARGE Faculty Search Seminar will be part of a series of events on faculty recruiting, hiring, and diversity in the fall sponsored by UVa CHARGE, the College of Arts & Sciences, SEAS, the Provost’s Office, and the Executive Search Group.

Even if you have attended a past UVa CHARGE Faculty Search Seminar please consider joining us again as different topics on the same themes are explored each year.

Connecting the Dots: Faculty Recruitment, Satisfaction and Voluntary Turnover at U.Va.

Maggie Harden, Provost Office

Most faculty and academic administrators will not be shocked to learn that there is a through-line, a distinct set of themes, which connect the reasons why people come to U.Va. with the reasons why they leave. As unique as we are, in this respect U.Va. is not terribly different than other complex organizations. This presentation and facilitated discussion will explore these factors (specifically in regards to recruitment) using the University’s own institutional research on faculty candidate decision-making, faculty satisfaction, and voluntary leave-taking.
