This could be considered a very high level summary of the more detailed Policy on Recruitment & Selection of Faculty Members (SPS A1) & Companion Handbook, and is intended as a guiding resource/checklist for the Chair/Hiring Manager and entire Committee.
This resource could be considered as complementary to the Best Practices for Inclusive Excellence in Hiring guidelines, and serves as a ‘second check’ from the EEF lens to ensure the search meets the expectations for an inclusive hiring process.
To be completed for each search by both the Chair/Hiring Manager and the Facilitator (in searches they served as the EEF), to assess the effectiveness of the EEF Program.
