Faculty Recruitment & Hiring


The Faculty Recruitment and Hiring module elucidates the tenure track search process as dictated by California State University, Fullerton’s University Policy Statement 210.001. It covers the opportunities and challenges of incorporating high impact equity practices, and provides details for a number of strategic diversity recruitment practices.

The target audience is department search committee members at CSUF. This consists mostly of staff, but also includes faculty and student assistants involved in the hiring process.

As an employee of CSUF in the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity Programs (DIEP), it was my responsibility to take content from the live sessions and create self-paced digital modules. These modules provide an alternative option for those who prefer to experience content at their own pace rather than in a real-time live session context.

Note: I’m unable to share this module in its entirety (NDA). However, I have permission to share some excerpts on this page to help provide a glimpse into the module, which is now live at California State University, Fullerton.
