Finding the right candidate for administrative, professional and faculty positions is one of the most important tasks that any institution or enterprise undertakes.

Following the expert model presented in this book will virtually guarantee successful searches.

This guide covers the complete cycle of hiring, starting with defining the position and forming and briefing the committee, through cultivating a rich and diverse pool of candidates and screening and evaluating candidates, to making the selection, successfully completing the search successfully, and welcoming colleagues to campus. This volume includes over 30 templates that are designed to be copied and used as training handouts or as handy reference and resource materials that provide guidance at various stages of the search process. The over two dozen vignettes included can be used as training case studies or as expert advice that illuminates key concepts that are helpful with improving the quality of the search process. The guide includes: 1. An expert step-by-step search model. 2. Dozens of templates, samples, tools, plus a bank of interview questions. 3. Diversity recruitment and selection protocols and techniques. 4. Resource guide with advice, case studies, examples, and training materials.
