Academic Hiring Manual

1.2 - Role of Deans & Separately Reporting Directors in Academic Hiring Process

The hiring procedure firmly establishes accountability of deans and separately reporting directors to advance diversity via the recruitment and retention of women and minority faculty and academic staff members. Annually data will be provided by the Office of the Provost to deans and separately reporting directors detailing hiring records for tenure system faculty by college together with collegiate departmental/school profiles of current tenure system representation and hiring opportunities for the next three years. Hiring outcomes and evidence of aggressive broad gage recruitment efforts will be discussed annually with each dean/separately reporting director by the Provost in regular planning discussions. Records of diversity achievement or non-achievement will have an impact on resource allocation and merit salary decisions.
