CHAPTER THREE: GENERAL EMPLOYMENT RULES AND PRACTICES

3.1 Search Guidelines

One of Westmont's long-range priorities is to diversify the campus, both in terms of its programs and its people, because the mission of the college includes the preparation of students for cross-cultural work and leadership. Therefore, the ethnic and gender diversity of applicants is an important factor in selecting candidates who can help us provide an increasingly diverse educational experience for our students.

As we work together to identify and hire a greater number of diverse applicants, Westmont is simultaneously committed to:

  • Hiring the best candidates;
  • Including ethnicity and gender as a factor in determining which candidates are best; and
  • Working harder at identifying diverse applicants who would be the best candidates.
