EOS's Role in Recruitment of Faculty
The Office of Equal Opportunity Services (EOS) supports UT Arlington’s academic departments in the recruitment process for tenure and tenure-track faculty. Equal Opportunity Services (EOS) is also a resource in helping departments find the best person for the academic position, while furthering the University's commitment to the recruitment, support and retention of a highly qualified diverse faculty.
EOS assists the Deans and Academic Departments during faculty searches by providing training, responding to questions related to the Faculty Recruitment guidelines, and serving as a resource on other issues that may arise during the recruitment process. It is critical that search committees follow EEO guidelines as well as university processes and procedures to ensure successful searches. EOS monitors the faculty searches from beginning to end to ensure equity and diversity principles have been used in the hiring process. EOS does not interfere with the standards or selection criteria set by each department.
EOS functions as the EEO Office responsible for monitoring and coordinating the faculty recruitment process for the purpose of compliance with search procedures, university policies, and legal regulatory requirements. EOS also ensures that the university’s goals for achieving diversity in the recruitment of faculty is taken into consideration by monitoring the diversity of each searches’ applicant pool. EOS provides guidance in supporting the University's goal of identifying, recruiting and retaining highly qualified, talented, and diverse faculty, including women, members of underrepresented groups, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
Our collaborative efforts also include assisting search committees to expedite their search process while ensuring compliance to guidelines so they may have a competitive advantage in identifying and selecting outstanding new faculty for their colleges and departments.
