Faculty Additions and Replacements

Should a faculty position become available, after approval of the Dean and Provost, the Director will convene a search committee from among the full-time faculty members, though members may also come from other schools, departments and the student body. This committee will institute a formal search, in line with University, College, Equal Opportunity Commission and Affirmative Action regulations.

When any candidate is interviewed on campus, all faculty members shall have the opportunity to meet with the candidate and express their confidential observations and recommendations, either written or oral, to the Director. The Director will consider these observations and recommendations, and, after formal consultation with the search committee and the FAC, nominate a candidate to the Dean.
