    Faculty Hiring Plans: Process and Strategy INFORMATION ITEM This item is being presented for information only. BACKGROUND

    During prior academic and administrative appointment approvals, the Board has requested information on the University's strategic approach to hiring and additional detail on how monthly appointments reflect process towards strategic objectives. The board received a full report of faculty demographics in March 2016, and additional information on Health Sciences strategic approach to hiring and the role of the Office of Faculty Advancement at subsequent meetings.

    While varied hiring seasons across different academic disciplines skew monthly data, all schools and colleges are required to have hiring plans approved by Academic and Human Resources and the Provost on an annual basis. The development and approval of these plans include in-depth conversations about hiring strategy for the upcoming academic year from both an academic and financial perspective.

    Key considerations for hiring plan development at the school/college/department level include:

    • Where the field is going • Building strength in a few areas of focus • Student demand • Program growth or retraction

    Key considerations for hiring plan approval at the “central” level (Provost, Academic HR) include:

    • Articulation of college-wide strategy • Faculty rank • Available financial resources and overall financial stability

  • STANDING COMMITTEES Academic and Student Affairs Committee Faculty Hiring Plans: Process and Strategy (continued p. 2)

    A–1/210-16 10/13/16

    At the direction of the Chair of Academic and Student Affairs Committee, the Provost and Academic Human Resources prepared a presentation on the hiring plan process and “plan-to-actuals” hiring plan performance for the most recent academic year.

    The purpose of the presentation is to provide context for the planning and decision-making process that occurs prior to monthly Board approval of faculty appointments. Representatives from UW Tacoma and the College of Engineering will provide perspective from the school and college level. Chad Allen, Associate Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement, will provide information on how the Office of Faculty Advancement promotes the hiring, retention, and success of a diverse and inclusive faculty in the hiring process.
