Hiring Seminar: Making It Legal, Ethical, and Effective
Hiring the most qualified candidates has become increasingly challenging for many universities. This phenomenon is not unique to St. Thomas. Academic and administrative leaders play many roles, but few are more important than hiring the right people. In doing so, hiring officials must answer many questions, and among these is whether the preferred candidate can help St. Thomas fulfill its institutional mission. During this interactive three-hour seminar, we will explore several key elements of St. Thomas' selection process and the challenges these present for the University and hiring units.
To gain a deeper understanding of your role as a hiring official or search committee member
To understand the important role that University policy, employment law, and institutional mission play in the search process
To learn how to frame and ask the tough questions while not offending or violating the law
To obtain additional strategies for obtaining the information you need from candidates
Who Should Attend?
Administrators, Department Chairs, Search Committee members, and Managers involved in the search and selection process
Campus community members with responsibility for hiring who are interested in learning more about the institutional effects of poor hiring decisions
