Search Committee

  • The search committee plays a critical advisory role in the identification, recruitment, and evaluation of candidates. Committees are formed in accordance with departmental or unit procedures, but all have the common goal of filling open positions with individuals who will advance the University's mission
  • Determination of the members of the search committee should be made early in the recruitment process, ideally, at the time the ad is being reviewed
  • Employment Consultants will work with the hiring manager or search committee chair to provide the training before committee members begin to review applicant materials
