Sometimes, job applicants and candidates have questions about what a department’s culture is like and what it’s like to live and work at a particular institution/town given its demographic composition and other socio-cultural characteristics. People may want to ask questions like these in confidence, outside the context of the formal search committee. The following PBS faculty, who are not on the search committee, are happy to serve as such contacts (i.e., be search advocates). We encourage potential applicants and candidates to reach out to these faculty if they have such questions.
Contact information for search advocates to ask questions about the hiring process, department, campus, and Bloomington:
