Search Committee Training and Resources

“Search committees shape the faculty—and therefore the university—for years to come” (Fraser & Hunt, 2011, p. 189).

For additional information about Faculty Search Committee training requirements and expectations, review the training resource document. Equity Advisors or University Human Resource personnel can add search committee members to the Search Committee Training Canvas course. 

Within the training course, search committees are guided to the following resources:

Search committee members are encouraged to share the Build Your Career at ISU (PDF, 230KG) document with all candidates. Additional information is described on the Community Resources webpage.
