Research demonstrates that implicit bias impacts the way we evaluate others, including our evaluation of candidates during the recruitment process.  A critical strategy for reducing bias is to use standard, objective evaluation criteria.  We have provided samples of evaluation tools for an initial candidate evaluation and for evaluation of candidates during an on-campus interview.  You may choose to use these samples, or they may serve as a reference for your department to create its own evaluation tool based on the criteria that are most relevant to your field.
