Faculty Hiring Processes

Instructional Associates (IAs) chair the hiring committee for any new permanent faculty.

At the department leader’s request, they may chair or mentor the department leader in hiring auxiliary/term faculty following the Collective Agreement. See the department leader handbook for more information.

Avoid unconscious/implicit bias in hiring. Consider the language in your job postings, the process of reviewing resumes (do you remove names before ranking candidates, do you use a rubric with the job posting qualifications?), and how interviews are structured. These may be places where implicit bias is occurring in a department’s hiring practices.
