Academic Recruitment

OFEW is the office on campus that oversees and supports all academic recruitment. This includes Senate and non-Senate faculty searches. Every search process is fully documented in the AP Recruit applicant tracking system used by all UC campuses. 

OFEW supports department chairs, search committee chairs, and faculty equity advisors in creating search processes that are fine-tuned to individual disciplines, search levels, and departmental needs, while also complying with federal, state, and campus laws and requirements. 

OFEW is committed to the continual improvement of search practices that will yield the kinds of hiring outcomes to which the campus is committed. 

OFEW takes an evidence-based approach to recommendations for academic recruitment practices, periodically publishing data and studies.
