Search Committee

Individuals convening search committees are urged to seek advice from the Division of Human Resources/Recruitment and Staffing with respect to University recruitment and selection procedures.

A member of the staff of Human Resources/Recruitment and Staffing will act as advisor to the principal Hiring Officer or to the chairperson of the search committee to insure compliance with University policies and procedures.

Procedures for the conduct of searches and consideration of candidates for certain specific positions are set forth in the Handbook for Faculty and Academic Administrators and The Bylaws of University Council. (Copies may be obtained from the Office of the Secretary of the University.)

In addition, consultative committees may be established at the discretion of the Hiring Officer to advise on the screening and hiring of candidates for any key position. A key position is one which has significant impact on various internal and external constituencies.

A Hiring Officer who establishes such an consultative committee should include members of affected constituencies.
