All hiring for EHRA non-faculty employees should be done through the use of a search committee that works closely with the department’s Talent Acquisition Partner. The committee should receive a charge setting forth the expectations for the position and the search committee’s role in helping fill the position. The committee’s charge should include:

  • a detailed position description with preferred and minimum qualifications
  • advertising and outreach sources for the purpose of securing applicants
  • selection criteria that is objective and based on the position requirements.

The beginning of the search is also a good time to review the department’s workforce composition and to identify departmental needs with respect to diversity and the furtherance of equal opportunity principles.

Typically, for Faculty searches, the Dean appoints the search committee and gives the charge. Check with your school for the internal guidelines for faculty searches.
