The Dean’s office may approve filling positions that are temporary for one year (with no expectation of permanent replacement) without conducting a full search. However, departments are still encouraged to conduct a local or regional search for these positions, whenever reasonable, and to make strong efforts to achieve a diverse applicant pool. In those rare instances where a search for a full-time regular faculty position is not feasible, a search exemption may be requested.
A full search is expected for temporary, one-year placements where a permanent full-time hire is anticipated. Exceptions may apply as approved by the Provost in consult with the Human Resources Office.
