When vacancies arise and there is sufficient time to conduct the usual search (e.g. vacancy arising because of death or resignation near the beginning of the academic year), the vacancies should be filled on a visiting basis or with a one-year contract. The reasons for an appointment should be sent to the Campus Affirmative Action Officer in writing. Selection should be made without regard to race, sex, age, or other non-job related criteria. The individual hired should be notified in writing that a visiting appointment has no bearing on any subsequent search for an individual to fill the position permanently. The chancellor and/or the vice chancellor for Academic Affairs must approval all visiting appointments.
After the formal offer to appoint has been accepted, the Office of Academic Affairs will prepare an Academic Personnel Action Recommendation for approval by the appropriate officers at this campus.
