Problem Searches


A search becomes a problem for a variety of
reasons. Whether the problem is caused by
slowness in the review of applications,
differences of opinion between the faculty
in the evaluation of candidates, a breach of
confidentiality or allegations of
misapplication of criteria, all these issues
may have serious consequences.




These problems result in lost opportunities
for the University to hire from a
competitive pool of highly qualified
candidates, unrecoverable costs in faculty
time and money, and protracted
involvement in external compliance agency
complaints and/or future litigation.
