Faculty Handbook 2016–17
draft in progress

Recruitment of Full-Time Faculty and Staff

Recruitment efforts at any level of the university are designed to promote the hiring of the best-qualified candidate for any vacant position and to ensure that SUNY’s affirmative action guidelines are followed.

  • Authorization to fill a vacant position is made by the president of Purchase College through the senior college officer in charge of the area in which the vacancy occurs.
  • Search committees are established to fill faculty vacancies and most administrative vacancies. The college’s affirmative action officer consults with search committees so that the steps in the recruitment and appointment process may be reviewed in detail.
  • Searches are conducted in accordance with the procedures outlined by the affirmative action officer to ensure a legal and productive search.

A downloadable PDF of the Search Process Handbook is available under Policies & Procedures on the Human Resources site.
