Advance at UNM developing new toolkit for faculty searches
ADVANCE at UNM is working with deans, department chairs, and search committees to improve faculty search procedures and align them with best practices nationwide.
Adhering to national best practices during faculty searches will help the University of New Mexico recruit and retain excellent faculty. In addition, conducting the search fairly and equitably will help insure that current UNM faculty who participate in searches feel that their perspectives are respected and valued, and that they derive satisfaction from the process.
A polished and professional search will project a positive image of UNM to scientific and scholarly communities in the United States and abroad.
