What is STRIDE?
STRIDE stands for Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence.
Northeastern University is adapted from the University of Michigan STRIDE Recruitment Committee to support search committees in the search and hiring processes.
The STRIDE Committee is a team of NU faculty who aim to increase faculty diversity by diversifying applicant pools and understanding implicit biases in evaluation procedures. The STRIDE Committee holds workshops for faculty search committee members every fall. More information about scheduling workshops is available here.
An extensive review of research was done by STRIDE members when developing the faculty search workshop.
The STRIDE committee is composed of distinguished senior faculty members who are highly respected in their fields and at Northeastern University.
