Office of the Provost

Web-based Faculty Hiring Process

The Office of the Provost will develop a web-based faculty hiring process. The current faculty hiring process involves completion of extensive paperwork which gets transmitted multiple times among multiple offices. It further necessitates repeated manual entry of similar data and does not integrate departmental, college, and university budget and personnel offices. A web-based faculty personnel hiring system will eliminate duplicative paperwork, speed up response time, reduce multiple data entries at differing levels within the institution, and contribute to a central planning effort and database which will be useful at all levels of the University from the department to central University personnel, payroll, and budgeting offices.
