Recruiting Faculty

  1. The College supports the goals of equal opportunity and affirmative action in recruiting and in making appointments to the faculty. Search Committees are appointed by the Dean after consultation with the CAC and faculty members in the specific area or discipline conducting the search for candidates. Search committees may include a student member selected by the faculty members who serve on the search committee. Following the review of the candidates, the search committee recommends to the Dean that two or three candidates be invited to campus for an interview. Each candidate who is invited to campus for an interview will present a seminar before the College. The search committee will provide the Dean with a recommendation regarding the search and the candidates interviewed.
  2. Search committee recommendations are advisory to the Dean who makes a recommendation to the Provost. The Dean shall inform the Provost of all recommendations.
  3. The processes and procedures for faculty search and initial appointment are described in Section 3.1 (Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure of Tenured/Tenure Track) and Section III.2 (Renewal of Appointment, Performance Reviews, and Promotion of Full-Time Non-Tenure Track (FTNTT) Faculty) of this Handbook, and in the applicable Tenured/Tenure-Track or Non-Tenure Track Collective Bargaining Agreement.
