Kent State University at Tuscarawas supports the goals of equal opportunity and affirmative action in recruiting and in making appointments to the faculty. The Campus Dean appoints search committees after consultation with Faculty Council. Faculty members in the specific area or discipline (or related area or discipline) then conduct the search for candidates. Search committees may include a student member selected by the Faculty members serving on the search committee. After initial screening of candidates, the search committee recommends to the Campus Dean that at least two (2) qualified candidates be invited to Campus for an interview. Each candidate who is invited to campus for an interview will present a teaching presentation before the Campus. The search committee may recommend its choice of candidates to the Campus Dean in ranked order. Committee recommendations are advisory to the Campus Dean who seeks approval from the University’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action and then makes a recommendation to the Office of the Provost. If the Campus Dean’s recommendation is different from that of the search committee, the Campus Dean shall inform the Provost of all recommendations and the reasons for the disagreement.
