Scholars for Best Practices in Hiring and Promotion
Research has established that all persons are subject to unconscious bias in hiring and promotion practices. Our goal is to educate individuals involved in the hiring and promotion of faculty on how to avoid unintentional bias by selecting (from MUSC Deans’ nominations) one College of Medicine and one other senior women faculty to serve two-year terms (administrative compensation provided) for training all high-level search committees, department chairs and deans, and annual tenure and promotion committees (departmental, college, and university level)
