During the past year, Human Resources has increased diversity outreach efforts by advertising vacancy announcements with local tribal agencies, including the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation, Trinidad Rancheria, the Wiyot Tribe, and the Yurok Tribe. We also include the National Veterans Foundation (NVF.org) as one of our standard recruitment locations. We include diversity language in all vacancy announcements and encourage departments to advertise with diversity-focused organizations in addition to our standard recruitment locations. Currently, we have a committee in place to address the goal of diversifying our outreach efforts for faculty, staff and administrator positions, and plan to reach out to numerous local diversity-focused organizations to help expand and diversify our candidate pools.
