1.08-1 Announcement

Applications for each vacancy should be invited from the widest possible audience. While this fulfills affirmative action guidelines, its value is deeper: both quality and diversity are more likely to be enhanced with completely open, widely advertised searches. In addition, be as general as possible in describing qualifications and areas of scholarly expertise. Quality and diversity are adversely affected to the extent that position descriptions are narrowly defined. Ads should make clear that (with the exception of Cooperative Extension) all tenure track appointments include responsibilities for both instruction and disciplinary scholarship.

Refer to the UGA International Student, Scholar and Immigration Services (ISSIS) website when recruiting for faculty rank positions that may attract an international applicant pool to review a recommended guide for advertising the position.
