Approvals to hire extended through December
University Human Resources announced June 25 that requests to post position vacancies will require approval from the respective president/senior VP (or delegate) through at least Dec. 31. This applies to faculty, P&S, merit, contract, postdoc, resident/intern, temporary and emergency employees.
For positions with approval to proceed, units should exercise discretion on whether to conduct interviews virtually or in-person. Department circumstances will vary, but the top priority should be each candidate’s comfort level and preference for interviewing virtually or on campus. For on-campus interviews, all related COVID-19 safety protocols outlined by the university must be followed.
Hiring units also should have plans in place to properly welcome and onboard any new hires during this time. University orientation presentations now can be found online.
