Search Process and Protocol

  1. Diversity and Inclusion

    The University of Texas at Dallas values the great variety of intellectual and cultural perspectives that contribute to our success in research and education. We strongly believe that our future depends heavily on our ability to embrace diversity and leverage the strength of inclusion.

    The University prohibits unlawful discrimination against a person because of their race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, sexual orientation and gender identity. The University's commitment to equal opportunity extends its nondiscrimination protections to gender expression.

  2. Confidentiality

    The Hiring Manager and Search Chair are responsible for ensuring that all application materials are secure. All applicant materials and committee deliberations are confidential and may only be shared with those directly involved in the employment process.

    UTD respects the level of confidentiality expected by our candidates. Therefore, names of candidates will not be posted on the website.

  3. Accommodation Request

    If you require an accommodation in the application process, please contact the designated search firm consultant.

    If you will require an accommodation for an on-campus interview, please contact [email protected] to discuss necessary arrangements.

  4. Search Committee Charge

    The Hiring Manager is responsible for the employment decision and for providing guidance and support to the designated Search Chair throughout the entire employment process. The Hiring Manager must explain to the search committee its duties as outlined in the Recruitment Plan.

    In charging a search committee, the Hiring Manager should define expectations for the search by detailing the position’s minimum and preferred qualifications, advertising and outreach sources, and developing selection criteria to include an assessment of the candidate’s qualifications for working within a diverse environment. This charge should include the hiring manager’s overall vision for the position and the skills/knowledge a successful person in this position will possess. This is the opportunity for the hiring manager to make clear to the search committee exactly what the priorities are for the role and give the search committee a clear and consistent framework by which to evaluate the applicants. It is also a good time to review any placement goals for the particular positon type to be filed or for the general unit/department in which the position will be housed.
