Department Philosophy Regarding Faculty Recruitment and Selection

Central to the accomplishment of the Department's mission is the recruitment and selection of new Faculty who have the potential or proven ability to create quality research and to share marketing knowledge and skills effectively with others. It is explicitly recognized that demographic diversity in the Faculty is a desirable goal for the Department because such diversity brings differing perspectives on research and teaching to the program.


            To these ends, the Department has procedures (specified in the body of this Handbook) which help assure that a diverse pool of applicants for Faculty positions includes individuals who:

  • have received their doctoral training from research oriented universities and/or who have demonstrated the ability to produce high quality research published in appropriate refereed journals,
  • have the ability to effectively share knowledge with others,
  • are demographically diverse, and
  • are motivated to make a significant contribution to the Department's mission.
