Administrative Search Process


1.  Sponsoring committee:  Agenda Committee

2.  Motion Presenter:  Ed Hinson

3.  Date of Faculty Senate discussion:  September 27, 2004

4.  Motion:

Whereas the faculty affirm the importance of their proper role in the selection of administration personnel, whose duties involve the academic mission of the university, and have recognized that in some recent selection processes this role was not fully realized;

and whereas both faculty and administration have sought to remedy this shortcoming through discussion of the search process and of ways of insuring proper faculty input into such processes;

the Faculty Senate endorses the document outlining faculty input into extraordinary search procedures; the senate welcomes the willingness of the Provost and Administration to abide by such; and the senate calls upon the Administration to incorporate these or equivalent procedures within official UNH policy at the earliest opportunity.
