New resource from ADVANCE. 10 strategies to retain faculty of color


Faculty Recruitment Workshops

ADVANCE’s STRIDE Committee will be holding cross-campus Faculty Recruitment workshops this fall. Workshops will be held over Zoom, with resources available on Canvas.

Workshops & Events


The STRIDE Committee provides information and advice about practices that will maximize the likelihood that diverse, well-qualified candidates for faculty positions will be identified, and, if selected for offers, recruited, retained, and promoted at the University of Michigan. The committee leads workshops for faculty and administrators involved in hiring.


Launch Committees are a resource for new tenure track assistant professors, offering support and guidance as they begin their careers at Michigan.  Committees meet monthly over the first academic year.
