UTK Workshop / Training requirements (changed as of AY2015-2016)

  1. Only the Search Committee Chair will be required to meet with an OED (Office of Equity and Diversity) representative unless the requirement is waived by OED.
  2. OED will offer five sessions for chairs in the fall semester and two in the spring. Each college is responsible for having the chairs of the search committees attend one of these sessions. Any searches approved after the meetings will require the department to work with OED to meet the requirement.
  3. The campus will phase in a requirement that search committee members attend a STRIDE presentation
