Faculty Search Waivers not Reported to the Board of Regents
To Prevent a Critical Work Stoppage
A specified term appointment up to one-year (not subject to renewal) may be approved to acquire the services of an individual critical to institutional needs when operating requirements are immediate and a public search would result in undue delay or disruption. The department is committed to conducting an open and competitive search during the specified term appointment period.
Reassignment or Lateral Transfer
A reassignment or lateral transfer may be approved without a search to reassign an individual within a unit, department, or division (or among divisions with the joint concurrence of division vice presidents) to perform a new role (whether time-limited or continuing in nature and whether position or employee transfers) in order to achieve operational objectives – particularly in the instance of a nine-month faculty member being appointed to a 12-month academic or administrative role.
An internal promotion may be approved without a public search to promote an individual within the unit, department, or division where such individual serves as next in line subordinate of the vacant position and for which no similarly situated individual exists.
