Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence (STRIDE) Workshop

8:00 AM to 9:30 AM
Add to Calendar

Danto Auditorium

The Medical School STRIDE Committee provides information and advice about practices that will maximize the likelihood that diverse, well-qualified candidates for faculty, fellowship and residency positions will be identified, and, if selected for offers, recruited to the University of Michigan. The committee leads workshops for faculty and administrators involved in selection, recruitment and hiring. Much of the information is also relevant to retention and promotion of these individuals as well.


STRIDE Training:

* Has involved dozens of senior faculty members from across campus

* A decade of reading the research and thinking about its application to faculty searches

* Michigan-specific best practices and successful approaches to effective searching


Please join us for this workshop that will assist those who wish to recruit and subsequently hire diverse, well-qualified candidates for faculty, fellowship and residency positions.

Facilitated by: 

Juanita Merchant, MD, PhD, H Marvin Pollard Professor of Gastrointestinal Sciences, Professor of Internal Medicine and Professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology 

Beth Moore, PhD, Galen B Toews M.D. Collegiate Professor of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Professor of Internal Medicine, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, and Director of the Doctoral Program in Immunology

Breakfast will be provided.
