Diversity Supportive language

A proactive search ensures the pursuit of highly qualified candidates. Effective search committees proactively seek and attract the best candidate(s) for the position. An important component of any search should include a good faith effort to recruit women and underrepresented groups, as well as, majority candidates. As you draft the job announcement, the job description should include diversity supportive language and DePaul’s EEO statement. Some examples of diversity supportive language include:

  • The candidate must have demonstrated experience in working in a diverse urban environment.
  • The candidate must have demonstrated experience in working in teaching in a diverse learning environment.
  • DePaul seeks candidates with demonstrated cultural competencies to include teaching, service, and research in diverse learning communities.
  • DePaul is an equal opportunity employer that values diversity and strongly encourages diverse candidates to apply. ​
