Search committees play an integral role in the recruitment and retention of many faculty and staff positions. The positive outcomes of a successful search committee include the potential to increase diversity within our faculty and staff and ensure that we welcome the best and brightest to our university community.
Search Committee Training is an annual requirement for all individuals (including external committee members) who serve on a search at UMKC.
Search Committee Training includes the following modules:
Module One: Diversifying the Academy
