Our students’ success is largely dependent on the recruitment and retention of faculty who demonstrate excellent accomplishments or contributions in scholarship, research
Authorization to Recruit
New or anticipated faculty positions are initiated at the department level with the guidance of the respective college and the Provost to strategically realize institutional goals.
- For tenure-track or tenured faculty, department chairs or program directors should complete a Department Tenure-Track Authorization to Recruit (DeptTenureTrackATR) form each faculty position being requested, then submit the form to the respective academic dean.
- For full-time, non-tenure-track faculty, department chairs or program directors should complete a Department Non-Tenure-Track Authorization to Recruit (DeptNTTATR) form each faculty position being requested, then submit the form to the respective academic dean.
- After reviewing all requests, deans should determine the final searches and compile one College Prioritization Spreadsheet (CollegeATR), along with Request for Faculty Search Forms for each position being requested, for the Provost to review.
Upon approval to recruit, the UTEP Equal Opportunity Office (EOO) will provide administrators and search committees support with guidelines for a successful search process. Visit EOO to review guidelines and to set up a search kick-off meeting.
