Affirmative Action

Outstanding faculty members are at the core of Indiana University's excellence. We strive to hire a diverse group of faculty with a broad range of talents, skills, and backgrounds. To ensure compliance with affirmative action and equal employment opportunity laws, the Office of Affirmative Action reviews and approves all academic appointments at the announcement stage, the interviewing stage, and the offer stage.Copy

University Academic Search Procedure Manuals and Guides

IU Bloomington Academic Search Procedures

Note: These procedures apply only to the Bloomington campus. For procedures on other campuses, contact the Affirmative Action Officer for your campus.

  1. After a position is created, a search committee formed, and a position description written, the Vacancy Notice must be completed by the hiring department and approved by the dean of the school, the Office of Affirmative Action, and the Dean of the Faculties. Only with this approval can the position be advertised.
  2. As applications are received, the Applicant Monitoring Form is sent by the hiring department to each applicant with a letter acknowledging the application. The hiring department needs to include the OAA number and department name in the box at the bottom of the form before mailing or e-mailing to all applicants. This form has instruction for returning by e-mail or post mail. The form is double-sided and should be wither e-mailed or post mailed back to the Office of Affirmative Action by the applicant.
  3. After the search committee determines the candidates to be interviewed, the Interview Request must be completed by the hiring department and approved by the dean of the school, the Office of Affirmative Action, and the Dean of the Faculties before interviews can be scheduled.
  4. Before making an offer to a candidate, the Offer Request must be completed by the hiring department and approved by the dean of the school, the Office of Affirmative Action, and the Dean of the Faculties.
  5. The hiring department should retain all search materials including applications and correspondence for five (5) years.
All search forms are now routed using the Academic Position Search Channel on OneStart. For complete instructions on using the system check these eDoc Lite Recruitment Guidelines.

If you would like to request a waiver from these procedures, please contact Juanita Jochim at the Office of Affirmative Action or complete and submit the Waiver Request via the Academic Position Search Channel on OneStart.
