What makes faculty candidates accept or decline offers? Despite the increasing attention that academia has given to search and hire processes, we still know relatively little about what actually drives a candidate’s decision once an offer is made.
In this webinar, researchers from the University of Virginia will share the results from a candidate declination and acceptance survey that sheds light on why faculty refuse or accept offers, whether or not these factors vary by race and/or ethnicity, and what the implications are for search committees and administrators.
Presented by Dr. Gertrude Fraser, Vice Provost for Faculty Recruitment & Retention, Maggie Harden, Director of the Institute for Faculty Advancement, and Jesse Rine, Research Associate, Center for Effective Teaching in Higher Education, University of Virginia.
This webinar was originally broadcast on April 28, 2011 and was sponsored by the following Regional HERCs: Greater Chicago Midwest, Metro New York & Southern CT, Michigan, New Jersey/Eastern PA/Delaware, St. Louis Regional, and the Upper Midwest.
