The Search and Screen Committee: A Simulation. Equity for Women in Higher Education Project.
Carroll, Mary R.; And Others
A simulated search and screen committee activity for selecting three candidates for final interviews for the position of assistant professor of higher education in a College of Education is presented. The institution, "Metropolitan State University," and the position are briefly described, and the process of the appointment of the committee and the recruitment procedures followed to date are summarized. Additional data selected from the committee files are included since they reflect some current concerns being expressed at the university relevant to the position. For each candidate, a rating sheet is to be completed. The first task of the committee will be to elect a chairperson to assume the role of a designated professor. Other committee members will assume administrative, faculty, and student roles to create approximately the proportional representation specified in the description of the committee's composition. Each committee member will indicate reasons for selecting three individuals and key qualifications, and will designate which committee moves through its discussion, the following tasks should be performed: individual candidates should be ordered by rank; committee members should detail the reasons for their choices and differences of opinion; there should be a movement toward group consensus; all group members should participate; and key issues that arise should be noted for later discussion purposes. Enclosures include summary information and letters of recommendation for each candidate and rating sheet, and a guide for discussion leaders. (SW)
