Selection of administrators
All hiring processes are reviewed by Human Resources to assure that institutional commitments to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action principles are respected.
The Board of Governors elects, on nomination of the President, the chancellor of each constituent institution. The President nominates from a list of not fewer than two names recommended by the institutional Board of Trustees (see The Code, Section 500 B, (1)). Specific procedures for the identification of candidates are established by the President and Board of Trustees.
Vice chancellors and senior academic and administrative officers
The Board of Governors appoints, on recommendation of the President and of the Chancellor, all vice chancellors and senior academic and administrative officers (see The Code, Section 500 B, (2)). Specific procedures and responsibilities for the identification of candidates for these positions are established by the Chancellor.
The procedures include development of a position description, announcement of the position, and establishment of a search committee whose responsibility is to review applications, interview final candidates and submit a recommendation to the appropriate administrative officer. Faculty members are asked to serve on the various search committees.
The Chancellor appoints, on the recommendation of the Provost and Vice Chancellor and the appropriate dean, all chairpersons. The responsibility for the process leading to a recommendation is delegated to the dean.
