The School supports the goals of equal opportunity and affirmative action in recruiting and in making appointments to the faculty. Search Committees are appointed by the Director after consultation with the FAC and faculty members in the specific area or discipline to conduct the search for candidates. Search committees may include a student member selected by the faculty members serving on the search committee. Following the search, the search committee recommends to the Director that two or three candidates be invited to campus for an interview. Each candidate who is invited to campus for an interview will give a presentation before the School. The search committee may recommend its choice of candidates to the Director. Committee recommendations are advisory to the Director who makes a recommendation to the Dean. If the Dean concurs with the Director, a recommendation is forwarded to the Office of the Provost. If the Director's recommendation is different than that of the search committee and the faculty, the Director shall inform the Dean of all recommendations and the reasons for the disagreement.
