In order for the administration to exercise its appropriate responsibility and accountability in the area of faculty and staff hiring, the Board expects the administration to be actively involved and responsible for the employment and selection process, including ads placed by the College for open positions. To advertise open positions, ad copy should be submitted to the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs for Faculty Personnel for approval. The ad should provide a date for the Search Committee to begin review of the completed applications rather than state a closing date for receipt of applications.
The Department Chair will send the approved ad to the Human Resources Office with a request to submit the ad to Higheredjobs.com, Inside Higher Education and the Rhodes webpage. The Department Chair or Search Committee Chair will submit the ad to the appropriate disciplinary site and appropriate graduate departments. Advertisements may also be placed in regional, national, and/or specific disciplinary publications. Searches should include advertisements with disciplinary organizations and networks of special interest that contribute to a diverse candidate pool. One copy of the ad must appear in a print venue. The Department Chair/Search Committee Chair should consult the assigned Diversity Officer for assistance in identifying appropriate venues.
