Search Committee Confidentiality Agreement
Human Resources, with the guidance of Provost Stocks, Vice Chancellor Clark, and Vice Chancellor Labanc, has developed and implemented the "Search and Recruitment Committee Members Role, Responsibility, and Code of Conduct." Search committee members are advised to review the committee members' roles and responsibilities while serving on a search. It is imperative that committee members use the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct to protect the integrity of the process and the confidentiality of each and every candidate. The agreement confirms the members' understanding and commitment to maintaining the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct. The Chair of the search committee is responsible for collecting and maintaining the signed agreements; along with all of the application materials, interview notes, screening sheets, and reference checks.
The academic contract dates for 2015-2016 are available.
