Employment Search:  Statement and Values

Undergoing an employment search can be both a stressful and exciting opportunity. In keeping with our commitment to providing well-run professional search processes, Housing & Dining Programs has crafted a series of "employment search values" that we strive to uphold in all of our recruitment and selection processes. We hope that this list reflects who we are and what we believe.

Our Employment Search and Selection Processes Values:

Integrity

A search process is an opportunity for an employer to evaluate a candidate and for a candidate to evaluate a potential employer. All employment candidates deserve to be evaluated as fairly and objectively as possible. In our searches, we endeavor to evaluate candidates on the basis of their applications and interview performance. We believe in representing ourselves and our organization with candor and strive to deliver clear and complete information candidates need to make their decisions.

Diversity

We affirm the importance of diversity as an important educational and innovative resource in our workforce. To this end, we strive to create search committees and assemble candidate pools that reflect varied viewpoints, perspectives, and experiences. The Office of Campus Life and Housing & Dining Programs foster an inclusive, welcoming, collaborative work environment and is committed to the recruitment and retention of a diverse workforce.

Efficiency

Conducting an employment search can often involve many complex, overlapping timelines and deadlines. We strive to be efficient during the job search process to ensure that candidates can make decisions in an adequate timeframe and a timely manner.

Transparency

We believe that candidates should be provided with information to understand our search process, timelines, and procedures. We commit to running a search where information is shared clearly and candidates can adequately understand their place in the process.

Professionalism

We believe in acting in an ethical manner in accordance with the nationally recognized ethics statements in student affairs.

Learning Opportunities

Housing & Dining Programs has a commitment to helping all candidates better themselves and to helping them understand how we arrive at our hiring decisions. When requested, we endeavor to provide candidates with feedback about their candidacy and interview performance.
