STRIDE often receives requests to visit campuses to share the workshop they have developed in addition to discussing how to develop a similar local campus effort. Because STRIDE’s capacity to accept these requests is limited, we have developed a different way to share STRIDE’s work. This winter the STRIDE Committee shared its advice with a national community of colleagues at a conference held in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Making STRIDEs: Diversity and Excellence in Faculty Recruiting conference began on Thursday, January 18, 2018 with a welcome dinner and a CRLT Players theater sketch on “Navigating Departmental Politics”. The conference continued all day on Friday, January 19.
