Implicit Bias

Research shows that implicit bias--unconsciously held assumptions or schemas that impact an evaluator's interpretation of data--impacts faculty hiring and evaluation. Search committees are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the following research on implicit bias and to identify steps they can take to address implicit bias in their review of applicants.
