EPA Hiring Policies and Procedures
The Recruitment and Selection Policies and Procedures for Faculty and Non-faculty EPA Positions contain university policies and procedures to guide search committees as they prepare for and conduct successful searches for EPA positions. The Recruitment and Selection Procedures as well as the resources on the compliance web site offer suggestions and recommendations for recruiting and hiring individuals from groups that are underrepresented at Appalachian.
Equal opportunity and affirmative action principles dictate that university searches must be expansive and open. Generally, EPA positions must be advertised nationally for a minimum of 30 calendar days. Upon approval from the director of compliance, searches may be limited to regional or local advertising and/or advertised for less than 30 calendar days (minimum 14 days) depending on the circumstances. In addition, internal searches may be approved by the director of compliance and the appropriate hiring administrator in limited circumstances.
