The Policy for Waived, Modified or Internal Searches was developed to reflect the current search practices endorsed by the offices of Equity and Diversity and Human Resources. These practices have been in use but have not been placed in written format, nor included in the Guidelines for Filling Faculty, Administrative, and Clerical/Support Vacancies.
This policy clarifies the university’s commitment to affirmative action and the university’s intent to comply with the university’s Affirmative Action Plan and the Search Guidelines, while providing needed flexibility to hiring managers in certain situations. This policy provides a hiring manager a procedure for requesting a written waiver or modification to the university’s standard search procedures. The written request is then provided the appropriate review and approval/disapproval before the hiring manager may proceed.
