Faculty Recruiting Support CICS

Five CICS Faculty Selected as 2023 STRIDE Faculty Fellows  

STRIDE Faculty Fellows

Five Manning College of Information and Computer Science (CICS) affiliated faculty members are among the 30 faculty selected university-wide to be part of the 2023 STRIDE Faculty Fellowship program, aimed at advancing faculty diversity and retention at UMass Amherst.   

Manning CICS 2023 STRIDE Faculty Fellows:  

The STRIDE Faculty Fellowship program is designed to ensure that the STRIDE Faculty Recruitment Workshops continue to be faculty centered and faculty driven, examining challenges of recruitment and retention on the UMass Amherst campus. Fellows have a one-year appointment with the goal of continued engagement either through STRIDE or other recruitment initiatives developed during the fellowship year.  

Sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Office of Equity and Inclusion, the fellowship program, complements other efforts to support faculty diversity, harnessing the collective knowledge and experience of university faculty to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in recruitment and retention. This year, the STRIDE program adds a new training for department and college personnel committees, Strategies and Tactics for Retention through Inclusive Promotion Evaluation (STRIPE). This training is modeled after the Texas A&M STRIPE training and a subset of this year's fellows will be specifically trained to administer this training to personnel committee members who volunteer to be certified.
