A commitment to and evidence of an explicit commitment to diversity and of advancing understanding and outcomes for underrepresented groups are essential. Candidates must have a record of excellence in research, as appropriate for the candidate's rank. Appointment with tenure requires documented excellence in research and teaching, and an emerging national reputation. Applicants with a respect for diversity and a passion for making a positive impact on the world in a collaborative environment are strongly encouraged to apply.
