The Academic Recruitment module is designed to run complex, efficient academic searches in a shared governance context, provide incoming academic candidates a professional introduction to the institution, and provide committees a secure, organized digital space for review. It is tailored to fit the nuances of the academic hiring process and supports the hiring of both faculty and Other Academic Appointees (OAAs).
- Academic Recruitment will replace the University’s current hiring system, Academic Career Opportunities (ACO). There will be a period of transition for in-progress searches, after which all new searches will be launched in the new module.
- Manual processes such as uploading candidate documents into a shared Box folder or printing documents for review can now be done in a private, shared committee review space within the online tool.
- A variety of features – position statuses, application tags, ratings, etc. – will increase the ability of committees and administrators to easily filter large pools of applicants and move candidates through the process, saving valuable time.
- Increased access to reporting features allow both individual academic units and diversity officers to improve the diversity of searches and achieve 100% EEO compliance.
