Student Affairs Search Committees: Navigating Institutional Commitments to Diversity

May 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+0

For years, higher education administrators have espoused commitments to hiring and employing a diverse group of staff. Despite these commitments, however, staff demographics have not significantly changed over recent decades. This session reviews the results of a 2022 research study which explored the ways search committee members understand their roles and navigate institutional commitments to diversity. Results reveal a new conceptual model for meaning making during hiring processes and highlight actions that can both advance or hinder representative hiring goals. This webinar will be held on Tuesday May 07 2024, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM and is presented by ACPA’s Mid-Level Community of Practice (MLCOP). Register here.
