Appointment Process
 

Administrators and Classified:

For administrative and classified appointments, upon receipt of the recommendations/Affirmative Action Certification and the materials of the final candidate(s), the Director reviews the material, makes a prioritized recommendation by so noting on the form, signs the Affirmative Action Certification, and submits this along with the application materials to the area Vice President.  Once signed by the Vice President and Affirmative Action Officer, the form is then executed by the President and forwarded to the Human Resources Department. 

Human Resources will prepare a formal appointment letter for signature by the appropriate division head.  The signed letter of appointment will be returned to the Human Resources Department and mailed to the successful candidate along with a notice of required documentation.  At this point, all applicants not chosen for an interview and all applicants interviewed who were not chosen to fill the position will receive a letter stating that they were not chosen as the successful candidate.

Faculty:

For faculty appointments, the recommendation of the final candidate(s) is made directly to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.  The Vice President then obtains final salary approval for the position from the President, reviews the recommendations and application materials, conducts further appropriate reference checks and telephone interviews, selects the final candidate, completes the final candidate section on the Affirmative Action Certification, obtains the signature of the Affirmative Action Officer, and submits the completed form to the President.  The President will execute the Affirmative Action Certification and forward it, along with the applicant's file and material, to the Human Resources Department. 

Human Resources will prepare a formal appointment letter for signature by the Vice President of Academic Affairs.  The signed letter of appointment will be returned to the Human Resources Department and mailed to the successful candidate along with a notice of required documentation.  At this point, all applicants not chosen for an interview and all applicants interviewed who were not chosen to fill the position will receive a letter stating that they were not chosen as the successful candidate.
