This paper shares our institution’s adaptation of the work of the University of Michigan’s peer education Committee on Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence (STRIDE) to advance our efforts to recruit a more diverse and inclusively excellent faculty. In our iteration of STRIDE, six highly respected faculty fellows facilitate conversations and activities with search committees and departments to help them identify and implement actions to reduce implicit bias throughout the lifecycle of faculty searches. This paper details the institutional context of our committee’s creation, describes our four-part recruitment-focused conversation series, and reflects on our progress and lessons learned. Through this review of STRIDE’s peer education activities and approaches, we hope to support the efforts of other institutions to design and implement their own recruitment practices to foster faculty diversity and inclusion.
