The University of Rochester attracts and unites an extraordinary diverse workforce. We promote an inclusive, welcoming, and respectful work environment with an ongoing effort to increase retention.

Recruiting and maintaining a diverse team is an important determinant of the University’s long-term success. Ensuring that every search reaches the broadest pool of potential applicants and providing opportunities for professional development are keys to maintaining that success.
