Conduct exit and stay interviews with faculty
The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity will conduct exit interviews with all departing faculty, as well as with faculty who have chosen to stay, to increase Dartmouth's understanding of the factors influencing employment decisions and to assist efforts to recruit and retain an excellent, diverse faculty.
Several peer institutions were surveyed as to the instruments they use in their exit interviews with faculty. Institutional Diversity and Equity, working with campus partners, has identified an instrument to use in guiding their work with faculty who have decided to leave Dartmouth, (thanks to our colleagues at Penn State University): http://www.psu.edu/vpaa/exitinterview.htm
Academic recruiting gets underway in the fall and concludes by May 1, and faculty may announce their intent to leave at any point before the customary May 1 date. Once faculty have indicated their intent to leave, they will be asked to complete the exit interview.
