Recruitment and Retention Resources

We are here to help administrators and chairs facilitate the recruitment of new faculty and we provide resources for staff retention and growth.

Recruitment Resources

Search Committee

Although a formal search committee may not be assembled for all hires, departments often rely on key individuals with leadership roles to help screen and interview applicants. Whether a formal search committee is involved, or an informal team, it is essential to provide resources and training necessary for these individuals to approach screening, interviewing, and selecting candidates from an informed and thoughtful perspective.
