Diverse Recruitment Sources

Seeking Diversity Among Applicants

Diversity can be defined as taking full advantage of the rich backgrounds and abilities of all by recognizing and valuing differences, seeking inclusiveness and considering and honoring differing points of view. In order to enhance educational diversity, the University of Arkansas seeks to include and integrate individuals from varied backgrounds and with varied characteristics such as those defined by race, ethnicity, national origin, age, gender, socioeconomic background, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and intellectual perspective. Expanding outreach and recruitment efforts will assist the university in making good faith efforts to recruit, employ, and promote qualified minorities, women, individuals with disabilities and veterans.

In accordance to the Proactive Recruiting Policy, departments and campus units will be required to use at least three recruitment activities within their respective discipline or field that target diverse populations. Utilizing low/no cost activities such as email listservs, professional contacts and organizations are recommended.  For the complete policy, visit:  Academic Policy Series 1405.16G or Fayetteville Policies and Procedures  204.1

In an effort to assist departments with recruitment sources, the Office of Equal Opportunity and Compliance and Human Resources has purchased and/or secured campus-wide licenses to the sources listed below. Jobs posted to the university career site will automatically be placed on these sources, no action is required of departments and these sources do not count towards the proactive recruitment requirements.
