Hakkola, Dyer research about building diverse faculty cited in Open Campus

Open Campus featured research by Leah Hakkola, assistant professor of higher education at the University of Maine, and Sarah Dyer, a doctoral student of higher education at UMaine and a diversity, equity and inclusion officer at Husson University, about implicit bias and hiring in higher education. Hakkola and Dyer found that faculty who chaired the committees often held implicit biases and, as a result, the types of candidates in the hiring process were limited.
