The California State University Faculty Recruitment Workshop (Los Angeles, CA, April 24-25, 1989). Report.
California State Univ., Long Beach. Office of the Chancellor.
This report presents issues and highlights from a California State University (CSU) workshop that had the following goals: (1) to present effective recruitment strategies and programs, including those for minorities, women, and the disabled, which have been employed on a CSU campus and which could be of benefit to others; and (2) to model faculty recruitment workshops which could be adapted for use on campuses. Topics covered in the workshop presentations included affirmative action in recruiting, generating a pool of faculty candidates, methods and approaches for recruiting in the national market, the role of the university administration, inter-institutional recruitment strategies, selling the campus to the candidate, and orienting the new faculty member to the school. Ideas on producing a campus handbook about faculty recruitment are also provided, as well as a sample of a campus interview schedule. Suggestions for sponsoring similar workshops are provided, and a list is offered of several controversial recruiting issues and questions. (GLR)
