Faculty recruitments are subject to approval from the Executive Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs Office and the Office of Academic Diversity and Equal Opportunity (OADEO). Once the faculty vote in favor of conducting a recruitment and the Department has secured approval from the EVCAA, the department submits a Recruitment Plan with the advertisement wording to the OADEO. Once the plan is approved, the Director of the OADEO may meet with the MSO and the search committee members to discuss the search and to recommend strategies for achieving diversified applicant and candidate pools.
UC San Diego encourages rigorous adherence to the April 30 deadline established by the Association of American Universities (AAU) for recruitment of an individual holding a tenure or tenure-track appointment at another AAU institution. For more information on this policy, see:
Specific information regarding recruitment policies is available at the following web site: http://academicaffairs.ucsd.edu/offices/adeo/
If you are a member of a faculty search committee, please bear in mind that the University has very specific policies regarding reimbursement of travel and entertainment expenses. Please consult with the MSO before incurring any expenses related to faculty recruitment. The department is provided a limited recruitment budget from the Dean’s Office.
(Revision, approved 6/4/2007); supersedes ES Department Guidelines for considering spousal/partner hires (est. Dec. 9, 2002)
Although there can be no guarantee of a spousal/partner position at UCSD, the Department of Ethnic Studies is committed to following the guidelines below for Ethnic Studies faculty members who request spousal/partner consideration (offered as a temporary or permanent arrangement):
The UC San Diego Partner Opportunities Program provides assistance and support in the employment search for spouses or partners of General Campus ladder-rank faculty candidates and appointees and of those in senior management positions who hold academic appointments.
The Partner Opportunities Program Web site: http://academicaffairs.ucsd.edu/aps/partneropp/ outlines program eligibility requirements and referral procedures. A form for requesting Partner Opportunities Program services is available via the Web site and should be submitted with a signature or e-mail approval from the department chair. It can be downloaded in Word or in Adobe Acrobat online and sent in via e-mail, fax or intracampus mail. Additionally, this website features links to valuable resources on resume development, interviewing skills, and San Diego job listings to assist job seekers.
Another valuable resource is the Southern California Higher Education Research Consortium (HERC): Founded in August 2003, the Southern California HERC is a collaborative response to the many challenges universities face in the recruitment and retention of faculty and staff. One particular focus of HERC is to find effective ways to assist the spouses and partners of faculty and staff in securing area employment.
