Our work to partner with schools, departments and units at all stages of the faculty hiring process seeks to strengthen academic excellence and retain Duke’s faculty talent.

Equitable Hiring Practices

Duke is committed to rigorous, equitable and inclusive searches to recruit and hire the most talented faculty. Offered several times throughout the fall semester, a workshop provides guidance for faculty search committee members, search committee chairs and administrators supporting the search. We also offer numerous resources for effective practices at all stages of the faculty hiring process.
