Campus Participation in the Development and Implementation of Faculty Selection Procedures.
Callas, Dennis
In order to recognize and assess the qualities and qualifications of potential new faculty at the State University Agricultural and Technical College at Delhi, Vermont, a study was made to develop and implement faculty selection procedures through campus participation. The study involved a comprehensive review of the literature, consideration of industrial models of employee selection, surveying faculty to determine their characteristics and attitudes on new faculty selection, and polling students on their attitudes toward participation in the hiring of faculty. Three steps to a successful selection policy were noted: (1) knowledge of how to attract applicants; (2) a clear conception of what the job description is, and what qualities are necessary for satisfactory completion of the job; and (3) a means of assessing the candidate. The study indicated that a participational model of governance was best suited to implementing the policy. Recommendations outline the method of implementation of the selection process, with emphasis placed on the use of all available assessment techniques and structured interviews. Two unique recommendations were to use an initial group interview with the top candidates and to have each candidate teach one class session. The survey instruments and a bibliography are appended.
