EHE Staff Recruitment and Searches

This tab serves as a resource for information and guidelines to support Staff searches. These resources are to help create an environment that is equitable, fair, and safe. Creating a diverse and inclusive environment takes intentional effort from the outset of the search for a new employee and through the employee's entire time with the university. We must ensure all applicants have equal opportunity for employment at the university. 


Before Beginning a Search
Prior to beginning any search, all faculty and staff are to complete the EEO Recruitment and Selection Guidelines training in BuckeyeLearn. This guidance sheet identifies how to apply affirmative action and equal employment opportunity requirements in the recruitment, selection, and hiring process. It is your responsibility to apply these requirements, share this information with others involved in recruitment, selection, and hiring processes, and intervene when conduct arises that does not meet these requirements. It is also important to understand your duty to report violations of these requirements and university policy.
