This toolkit was developed by the President and Provost’s Leadership Council for Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice to serve as a resource for search committees and administrators at Oregon State University.

The heart of Oregon State University is the people who work here. As we envision a university where everyone feels welcome, nurtured and enabled to work to their highest potential, we seek to ensure that those we hire reflect the mission, vision, goals and core values of the institution and the diverse population we serve. Efforts to increase the diversity of our academic faculty creates a community where students see themselves in their teachers and mentors, encouraging them to achieve their goals and dreams. I hope you find the resources in this toolkit helpful as you strive to create an environment that supports student success.
