The Medical School seeks to attain a diverse learning environment through the recruitment of faculty who are underrepresented in medicine and may also be underrepresented in Minnesota. Recruiting and retaining diverse faculty members is critical to create the intellectual and inclusive environment necessary to fulfill our research, teaching and clinical missions. With a diversity of viewpoints and identities within our departments, the Medical School is better positioned to address the next generation of challenges in medicine and continue its commitment to teaching and caring for our increasingly diverse population.
The Search Process Toolkit is provided to assist departments with best practices for hiring a diverse and inclusive faculty within the University of Minnesota Medical School (Twin Cities and Duluth campuses). You can also find a search process summary to provide to search committee members.
The Interview Process Toolkit contains resources and recommendations to assist departments with best practices for hiring faculty members and leaders within the University of Minnesota Medical School. These recommendations and resources are broadly representative of recommended practices by peer institutions, the Office of Equity and Diversity, and the Office of Human Resources.
