Moving toward Holistic Admissions and Hiring Practices

David Newman
Physics Dept./GI UAF



Holistic admissions and hiring practices are gaining traction as a best Evidence Based Practice (EBP). They aim to evaluate prospective students or hiring candidates on a broader, less biased, basis then the standard metrics such as GPA and GRE scores for graduate admissions or publications and proposals for faculty hires.  This talk will discuss some of the issues with current practices and how to implement some of the broader holistic measures.
A theme of this talk is that following these EBPs  a population of students (and hires) more likely to succeed and more diverse is likely to be admitted (hired).
