Faculty and Leadership
EVMS is committed to creating and fostering a diverse and cohesive faculty, professional staff and student body as the surest way to achieve its mission.
EVMS Diversity and Inclusion has developed a diversity recruitment policy to ensure that the search process for faculty and leadership produces a diverse candidate pool and to decrease unconscious bias in the selection process.
Each leadership search begins with a search committee orientation on EVMS policies on diversity and inclusion and a learning session on unconscious bias given by EVMS Diversity and Inclusion.
The office collaborates with EVMS Faculty Affairs and Professional Development in integrating diversity and inclusion as part of the professional development process at EVMS.
