Once the search committee is approved, the Search Committee Chair contacts Human Resources to open a search committee training session to assist in:
- Understanding the hiring process
- Legal responsibilities during the search process
- Diversifying the applicant pool
- Avoiding cognitive bias
- Engaging in effective search practices
Members of a Search Committee must either complete search committee training or have current training certification (within the last 12 months) to serve on a committee.
Training certification for all committee members should be kept as part of the search records by the Search Committee Chair.
Further information regarding search committee training will be forthcoming.
