Re-Examination of Faculty Hiring: Processes and Procedures

Professional Standards
Educational Policies Committee

This paper grew out of a workshop on faculty hiring, sponsored by the Educational Policies Committee at the 1999 Fall Plenary Session of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges. The current paper is not intended as a substitute for the 1989 papers. In what follows, those works are cited extensively in order to highlight and discuss features of the models that should be incorporated into current practice, but often are not. Finally, it is the intention of the Educational Policies Committee that this will become a living document, and that the specific recommendations made here will be supplemented regularly as academic senates develop and report on their own best practices.
