The office also requests that all departments for faculty or staff hires provide a diversity search plan in order to identify and implement methods to attract a diverse applicant pool. One example to recruit a diverse applicant pool is to leverage select on-line job list websites including, but not limited to the following: DiverseJobs.net, HispanicOutlook.com, and StudentAffairs.com.
