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 trainings necessary for these individuals to approach screening, interviewing, and selecting candidates from an informed and thoughtful perspective.
