About the Evaluating Equity in Faculty Recruitment Project

This NSF-funded Evaluating Equity in Faculty Recruitment (EEFR) project investigates the factors that generate disparities in hiring by gender and race/ethnicity through the construction and analysis of a unique database about the faculty recruitment process. The EEFR data compiles information from the online recruitment management system used by all ten UC campuses, including both structured data from the administrative system and unstructured data from the documents uploaded to the system, e.g., the applicants’ CVs and the letters of recommendation, during the application and evaluation process. Analyses of the EEFR dataset focus on measuring the prevalence, magnitude, correlates and consequences of inequalities in academic hiring processes.
