Search Committee

Search Committee Title Graphic - board room table

The use of search committees is prevalent in higher education and serves as a screening committee to identify the most qualified candidates to interview.

Search committee composition should include a diverse group of employees who can provide valuable input when reviewing applicant materials, selecting applicants for interview, and conducting interviews. The search committee has the same responsibilities in the interview process as any individual would have. However, with a committee, the option of using different interview approaches becomes available.

In this section you will find the roles and expectations of search committees.
