Great course that all search committee members should take. Several years ago, I took the in-person training for search committee members and thought that was useful. However, this course offers a lot more.View More
Thank you so much for this. I'm impressed at how relevant, up to date and inclusive this program was. I think this is the sort of program people could really benefit from.
Kept me interested and alert, will definitely remember topics discussed.
I believe DiversityEdu is the best online tool in the field. Leaders from several divisions at San Diego State worked closely with Alison Akant to develop a course for our faculty search committees. Alison proved extremely knowledgeable and attentive to the needs and goals unique to our campus and role in the state of California. DiversityEdu is an important resource for our faculty search committees in their mission to recruit and retain superior faculty and challenge misconceptions surrounding diversity.

At the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, the vision of Inclusive Illinois means valuing and respecting the many voices, ideas, and perspectives that faculty, staff, and students each bring to the campus community. In 2014, to help realize that vision, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Access and our faculty diversity committee evaluated DiversityEdu rigorously and positively. Over 600 members of our faculty have now taken the course, and we are introducing a student version of DiversityEdu for the 2015-16 academic year. We have received valuable assistance from DiversityEdu in realizing our vision of Inclusive Illinois.
