Hiring

 

The Hiring Official shall complete the appointment documentation and submit the recommended candidate, including the salary range to be used for negotiation, to the Dean/Director. If the Dean/Director agrees with the recommendation, it will be forwarded to Academic Affairs for Faculty appointments prior to The Office of Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/University ADA Office that receives the information for all positions. After the approvals, the recommendation will be sent to the EAU for review. The recommended rank for Faculty appointments must be approved by the Dean of the College prior to being presented to the EAU Director.

Note: If the Hiring Official wishes to select a candidate not recommended by the committee, the Hiring Official should discuss the rationale for this decision with the Provost or Division Vice President, and the Equal Opportunity Director, prior to extending an offer. The Vice President may accept the recommendation, in his/her discretion. In cases where the Hiring Official is a Vice President or direct report to the President, the final authority is the President.

The EAU will inform the Hiring Official when he/she may extend a verbal offer. The Hiring Official or Search and Screen Committee Chair shall forward all information pertaining to screening, evaluations and interviews of each applicant to Academic Affairs for Faculty positions, and Human Resources for all other positions, as well as completed reference sheets for all other interviewed candidates.
