Position control forms are due to the Strategic Hiring inbox, strategic_hiring@kent.edu, by noon on the Wednesday prior to the SHC meeting. This allows the SHC Prep Team to review forms and package them for the final Strategic Hiring Committee review. The Strategic Hiring Committee typically meets twice a month.

  • All dates are subject to change due to SHC availability and university closures.

Submission of a position control form by the due date indicated does not guarantee that the committee will review the submission at the next meeting.  In order to be reviewed by the SHC, all of the following criteria must be fulfilled:

  1. Position Control Forms must be complete and correct.
    • It is the responsibility of the submitting unit to verify all information on the Position Control Form prior to submission.
  2. All fields of the form filled out.
  3. Funding source must be clearly identified by index, account, and position number.
  4. Any necessary supporting documentation is included in the submission email.  
    • These attachments include, but are not limited to:  Salary Offer Worksheet; Organization Chart; Job Description.  

Much preparation is needed before submissions are given to the strategic hiring committee, so please submit your requests as soon as possible.  Your submission at or near the due date slows the preparation process and could hinder your submission going to the SHC meeting.
