Policy Procedures

  1. The hiring manager and designated search committee are responsible for partnering with the Affirmative Action Officer who may advise the team in developing general procedures to ensure the most efficient distribution of information, especially where underrepresented minority placement goals may exist.
  2. Position qualifications are reviewed carefully to ensure that the description does not in itself discriminate.
  3. Whenever possible, the search committee should be composed of diverse members of the University community.
  4. All sourcing and advertising must indicate that we are an “Equal Employment Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer.”
  5. The Affirmative Action Officer advertises each job announcement with the Recruitment Office’s contracted diversity sites and reviews each candidate pool to ensure diversity within the pool, especially where there is underrepresentation.
  6. Prior to a verbal offer, the Affirmative Action Officer reviews and approves all required forms pertaining to the search process.
