Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to equitable and inclusive practices and work environments across the University and throughout the span of faculty careers. To this end, the Office of the Provost offers a number of workshops and services to support equity, diversity, and inclusion.  

  • Teaching Race at UVA: Place-based Faculty Development Seminar

  • Promotion and Tenure Committee Bias Mitigation Workshops

  • Search Committee Bias Mitigation Workshops
    In this one-hour participatory workshop led by Associate Vice Provost for Faculty Development Jennie S. Knight, faculty involved in faculty searches learn research about the ways that biases can impact evaluation of candidates (even in spite of our best intentions) and about evidence-based practices to mitigate against those impacts. We discuss how search committees can best structure their search processes to create a positive, inclusive experience for all candidates and to hire the candidate best qualified for the particular position. To schedule a workshop, contact Jennie S. Knight.
