Advertisement Request and Approval Process

  2. Requests are reviewed and approved electronically at the department, Dean, Vice Provost, and Provost levels. Recruitment advertisements must be approved by the Provost, Dean (or designee), Affirmative Action Officer, and department before being published.
  3. When final approval has been confirmed, departments will place faculty recruitment advertisements in their chosen publications and media sources (including print and online media).
