Revolutionizing Faculty Searches! U.Va. CHARGE’s Template for Department Data for Faculty Searches

charge logo jpegU.Va. CHARGE has developed a faculty search pipeline-data template that can revolutionize how departments prepare and conduct faculty searches.

The template integrates data from 5 national and local sources:

  • Ph.D. Pipelines data: NSF Survey of Earned Doctorates, (2012) https://ncsesdata.nsf.ov/webcaspar/
  • Postdoc pipeline data:  Survey of Graduate Students & Postdocs (2012) https://ncsesdata.nsf.gov/webcaspar/
  • Department Peer Data:  AAU Data Exchange obtained from the university’s Office of Institutional Assessment or similar office
  • School & Department Data:  Obtained from the university’s Office of Institutional Assessment or similar office
  • Applicant Data:  Obtained from the university’s Office of Human Resources

Data entered into the “raw data template,”  will generate a gender by race data table, along with graphs depicting the data by gender, and gender by race for the academic department of interest.
