The Enhanced Training for Faculty Search Committee workshop aims to identify factors that can introduce bias into the faculty recruitment process and provides evidence-based approaches that will maximize the likelihood that excellent and diverse candidates will be identified, selected for offers and recruited onto the UC Davis faculty.

Reminders from the Vice Provost

Search Committee Chair Survey - Starting in 2018-2019, completion of the survey is required in order for a department to submit a Search Report. The survey becomes available in UC Recruit to Search Committee Chairs as soon as an open search has applicants. Completion of the survey is required in order to submit the Search Report in UC Recruit.

Required STEAD-certification for Members of Faculty Recruitment Committees:

STEAD certification expires after three academic years. For example, a faculty member who participated in STEAD or SOM workshops during the 2017-18 academic year will retain certification until June 30, 2021.

  • SOM/SON faculty may also participate in the STEAD program to become certified.
  • Non-UCD members of a search committee must also be certified.
