Instructional Associates chair the hiring committee for any new permanent faculty, and may at the department leader’s request, chair or mentor the department leader in hiring auxiliary/term faculty following the Collective Agreement. See the department leader handbook for more information.
Avoid unconscious/implicit bias in hiring. Consider the language in your job postings, the process of reviewing resumes (do you remove names before ranking candidates, do you use a rubric with the job posting qualifications?), and how interviews are structured for example, as these may be places where implicit bias is occurring in a department’s hiring practices.
