3. Review Applicants

Review of application materials can happen immediately. However, a decision cannot be made prior to the application review date. All job postings at the university are considered “open until filled.” If the need arises to consider applications received after the review date, hiring units are cautioned to give all applicants equal consideration by the hiring official. Hiring units are encouraged to contact the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance with questions about the appropriate handling of application materials.

Search Committee

A search committee is optional on office/service and managerial/professional positions.  When a search committee is used, please follow all requirements of a search committee as required by the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance. Regardless of whether you are using a search committee or a hiring official for these positions all regular processes, procedures and approvals for the search process must be followed. Anyone involved in recruiting, screening and/or interviewing must have attended the Search Process Seminar provided by the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance within the past three years.

All hiring officials will be accountable for following all laws and regulations and Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance and Human Resources policies and procedures governing the selection of office/service and managerial/professional positions, and maintain current search process seminar certification from the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance. Hiring officials not using search committees will be responsible for any questions or reviews that may occur as a result of a search.

All materials and documentation pertaining to the recruitment process must be preserved by the hiring authority within the department official files in accordance with the university's Records Retention Policy.
