The University of Pittsburgh is dedicated to recruiting, retaining, and recognizing an excellent and diverse faculty.
Attracting the most diverse and qualified pool of candidates is essential to your search, and to the continued excellence of Pitt. To assist you, we have put together a Faculty Search Resource Guide, which you should review prior to starting your search.
ODI offers customized Briefing Sessions on searching for excellence and diversity. Please contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-648-7860 to schedule a session.
Determining appropriate interview questions can be difficult, but the Pre-Employment Inquiry Guide can help.
Additional information about faculty recruitment and retention can be found at the Office of the Provost.
As a federal contractor, the University of Pittsburgh is committed to affirmative action in employment as a means of ensuring equality of opportunity. A recent compliance review revealed areas that required that we improve the way that we are capturing faculty applicant data. Therefore, it is necessary to change the way that the University recruits for faculty. Effective January 3, 2020, faculty recruitment will be initiated through the Talent Center or an on-line system approved by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
This memo explains what the OFCCP is requiring.
