Faculty appointments are one of the most essential activities of the departmental hiring unit. The university seeks to promote faculty diversity and equal opportunity by making every effort to provide a scholarly and educational environment that is welcoming, challenging and supportive of all participants, regardless of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, genetics, national origin, religion or political perspective.
The academic recruitment and selection guidelines manual [pdf] serves as a reference for search committees and other individuals responsible for academic recruitment and selection. Its intent is to provide guidance and assistance to those involved in the academic hiring process. The affirmative action recruiting sources manual [pdf] lists helpful program and association contacts for recruiting.
