This document provides an outline of the search process and some principles guiding decisions about hiring.
All searches for full-time faculty positions—even those to replace departing faculty— must be approved by the provost, Mark Sargent. Prior to launching a search, Mark takes the advice of the Academic Senate about the value and priority of the positions. To begin the process, submit a Faculty Position Request Form to the Provost as early as possible and not later than September 1 of the year the search is to be conducted.
|Permissible Interview Questions|
Supervising Adjunct Faculty New adjuncts will appreciate your help and that of your administrative assistant in getting them keys, finding their classrooms, getting set up with WebAdvisor, etc. Department chairs should plan to observe one or two of their adjuncts' courses during the semester and solicit some student feedback. This page provides some resources for part-time faculty.
Supervising Staff and Student Workers Department chairs oversee administrative assistants in their departments and will be asked to submit a performance evaluation of these staff members each year (May 15). Resources for managing and evaluating staff can be found here.
