4.10 Guidelines for Search, Appointment and Orientation of Faculty

4.10.1 General Guidelines

All faculty positions in the College which become vacant are subject to review by the applicable dean and the planning unit. When a position becomes vacant the planning unit conducts a needs assessment. It prepares a recommendation concerning refilling the position. A request to fill a position must be submitted through the dean to the provost & senior vice president for academic affairs. No appointment will be considered final until authorized by the president of the College.

4.10.2 Search and Screen Guidelines6

The recruitment and selection of candidates for faculty positions will conform with the equal employment opportunity and affirmative action policies and procedures of the College. A copy of the Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Guidelines is available in section 2.3 of Volume II of the Ithaca College Policy Manual, from chairs and in the offices of deans, the provost & senior vice president for academic affairs, and the director of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity.

The planning unit or school provides excerpted copies of Volume IV of the Ithaca College Policy Manual for all candidates for an appointment to the faculty who are invited for an interview on campus. These excerpted copies include the substantive standards and procedures employed in decisions affecting reappointment and tenure. The Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs provides a copy of Volume IV of the Ithaca College Policy Manual with the written offer of employment.
