I heard that the Virginia Commonwealth University open area position (not the two social positions they are also advertising) is a diversity hire. Does anyone know if that's true, or have any other information about what they are looking for?

Just out of curiosity, where does one acquire such knowledge RE: this posting being a diversity hire? It would be helpful to know this.
Likely word of mouth. It's a small academic world.
And yes, just apply.
VCU seems to have a focus on research in diversity. Maybe they are looking for a person who does that kind of work?
That is how I read the ad. It specifically says they are looking for someone with an emphasis in diversity.
Anyone know when they start reviewing? Is it 10/1? The wiki just says October.
Has anyone heard anything about this position? There was no date in October, so I assumed a 10/1 start.
Haven't heard anything from either the clinical or open search - would love an update if anyone has info!
Me too, particularly the open search. Even any insight into when they started reviewing.
