The Diverse Recruitment Task Force 3 was charged to “focus on a qualitative environmental scan of UNLV University Libraries’ current hiring practices” with the goal of understanding the staff perceptions of current cultural climate and recommending potential areas of focus for future changes. Task Force 3 initially planned a formal qualitative research project with IRB approval around interviewing Libraries’ staff on their experiences with the hiring process. However, this was changed to an informal town hall-style information sharing meeting after reviewing the timeline. Two meetings were held: one on November 19th, 2019 which focused on attendees’ reflections and experiences with the hiring process, and one on December 9th, 2019 which focused on attendees’ feedback on the recommendations of the other two task forces. Both meetings were approximately an hour long with about 20 attendees broken into four or five small groups at each meeting; a five minute recap of the Diverse Recruitment project was provided at the beginning with the rest of the time devoted to discussion. Notes were taken by task force members and then grouped by topic. See appendix for pre-prepared questions for each meeting.
