Recruitment and Hiring

Consistent with SUNY policy and the President’s affirmation, it is the policy of the University that an open and inclusive search should be conducted prior to filling all faculty or professional staff vacancies. However, as in all processes, a certain degree of flexibility remains. In certain situations, vacancies may be filled through an internal promotion, consistent with collective bargaining arrangements, or via search waiver, so as to quickly address critical workload situations necessitating immediate hiring.
