Strategy for increasing diversity:

  1. We will ensure that all committee members are aware of research on implicit bias and how it can influence searches. Committee members will all have attended workshops for search committees presented by the Carthage Director of Equity and Inclusion that provide guidance on developing a diverse pool of applicants.
  2. We will track and report statistics on underrepresented groups, to the best of our ability, to ensure that the short-list of candidates who are interviewed by phone represents their makeup of the applicant pool. We will do the same thing before creating the final list of candidates who will visit campus.
  3. We will post the job advertisement on nemet.com (minority faculty website),

www.awis.org (women in science organization), and www.hispanicoutlookjobs.com.

 

Founded in 1847, Carthage combines an environment of reflection and self-discovery with a culture of high expectation, so that our students uncover and ignite their true potential. As a four-year private liberal arts college with roots in the Lutheran tradition, we place a strong emphasis on both moral and intellectual values. Our prime location in Kenosha, Wisconsin, midway between Chicago and Milwaukee, allows students the opportunity to learn in a professional context. Our beautiful campus, an 80-acre arboretum on the shore of Lake Michigan, is home to 155 full-time faculty, 2600 full-time students, and 900 part-time students. Our rich academic experience equips students with foundational knowledge and skill, preparing graduates to be lifelong learners, and to lead meaningful, productive lives.
