Approved Changes to Search and Selection

I am pleased to send you a document of approved changes to the faculty and staff search and selection process.  This goes into effect on February 1, 2014.  Chief Diversity Officer Kumea Shorter-Gooden and the Equity Council, with significant input from University Human Resources, have worked to develop a more flexible and efficient process, while continuing to uphold the University’s commitment to equity and diversity in search and selection.  A Tip Sheet about the changes is also included.

Any questions should be directed to your Equity Administrator or to Kumea Shorter-Gooden at

Please note that Kumea will make a brief presentation on these changes at the upcoming University Senate meeting on Wednesday, February 5th, at 3:15.
