Search & hiring
Subject to approval by the Board of Trustees, the chancellor appoints new tenure-track faculty on the recommendation of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the appropriate dean, and the department chairperson. The responsibility for the process leading to a recommendation is delegated to the dean. The procedure includes development of a position description, announcement of the position, establishment of a search committee whose responsibility it is to review applications and recommend final candidates to the department for interviews, interviewing of final candidates by the department faculty and the appropriate dean, and submitting a recommendation to the appropriate dean. All hiring processes and applicant pools are reviewed by the compliance officer.
Proof of citizenship
Federal law (Public Law 99-603) enacted in 1987 requires that the university verify the citizenship of all employees within three days of employment.
