The Equity Advisor (also known as Diversity or the Equal Opportunity Representative) ensures that equal opportunity policies and procedures are carried out throughout the academic search process. Equity Advisors may be a single individual or the chair of a committee of individuals in an academic or research unit. Equity Advisors are specified in the Recruitment Packet.
The following are guidelines on how the Equity Advisor can support the academic or research unit in achieving its inclusion goals.

The website has information on key diversity resources and initiatives, family friendly programs and policies, and current systemwide and campus diversity efforts. The information currently posted in the "Campus Diversity Efforts" section is information obtained from campuses in 2016, in response to a legislative request on what campuses are doing to further faculty diversity.
