    Beyond Implicit Bias – Now that you are aware of how effectively address implicit bias in search committees, this workshop will provide strategies for addressing implicit bias in performance evaluations, in the classroom and in day-to-day processes on campus.


    Complementary or Conflicting Principles: Inclusive Excellence and Free Speech - The Free Speech controversies roiling campuses will continue unless universities harness their research, teaching and service mission to understand and confront extremism as part of an institutional effort to fortify inclusive excellence.  In this DAP-talk, attendees will learn tips and strategies for dealing with these issues in the classroom, research spaces, dormitories and offices on our campus.


    It Starts with Onboarding: Best Practices in Retaining Faculty and Staff - Successful retention begins with solid onboarding, which most people assume is HR-driven.  This talk examines the intersection between HR onboarding, unit onboarding, and successful retention programs as we work to welcome new faculty and staff and ensure that we are doing all that we can to retain them. In addition, we will explore how departments with strong retention numbers can provide best practice advice to those units who struggle in this area.


    Active Allyship: Uniting and Creating Educational Resources to Address Race and Racism on Campus - The University of Oregon has a significant opportunity to explore allyship and engagement of majority members of campus. This talk will highlight a forthcoming effort taking the shape as a strategy / working group. Members will share this initiative by discussing priorities, allyship training, and future directions.


    Inclusive Excellence in Graduate Education -. The real challenge facing doctoral granting institutions is rethinking graduate education from admissions to degree completion and placement in order to advance inclusive excellence. In this session, Directors of Graduate Study, Faculty and Graduate Advisors will learn best practices for retaining and advancing our increasingly diverse pool of graduate student talent. Discusses the UCI Diverse Educational and Doctoral Experience Program. ( 


    Strategy Groups: What They Are and Why They Are Important - In a model established by our Native American colleagues, faculty, staff and students from the Latinx, Black and API communities have established organizations that empower members and organize for change on our campus. These groups have played pivotal roles in recruitment, retention and purposeful partnerships on our campus. Come to learn more about how they work and what you can do to support their work.


    What We Can Learn from a Well-Constructed Climate Survey – What are the ingredients of a successful campus survey?  At this talk, come to learn about what is being planned for our campus survey and offer advice and input as the committee shares its works and incorporates feedback.
