Faculty Recruitment

Decisions regarding faculty hires are among the most important a university makes. As an equal employment opportunity/affirmative action employer, Emory University seeks to identify, recruit, and retain a world-class, distinctive, and diverse faculty in all academic disciplines.

The faculty recruitment process at Emory is a collaborative effort between the Office of Equity and Inclusion team and hiring officials at the school level. Each has a responsibility to ensure adherence to the university's Equal Opportunity and Discriminatory Harrassment policy.

OEI has the responsibility of monitoring and coordinating the recruitment process to ensure compliance with search procedures, university policies, and legal and regulatory requirements.

The hiring official has the responsibility of assisting deans, department chairs, and search committees in identifying and recruiting outstanding faculty. He or she must also keep abreast of affirmative action commitments and placement goals.

Our team members provide training, advise search committees on recruitment strategies and equitable search practices, and respond to questions that may arise during the recruitment process.
