Unclassified Search Process

The Office of Institutional Equity is responsible for monitoring faculty and unclassified staff recruitment and hiring procedures. Pittsburg State University is committed to providing an equal opportunity for all qualified individuals to be considered for employment and for all benefits and conditions of employment. In addition, as an affirmative action employer, the University is committed to taking specific, result-oriented steps to increase the number of historically underrepresented persons and increase overall diversity

As best practices and laws may change fairly frequently, prior to beginning a search, each search committee member should review the updated  Search Committee Guide. This guide gives the specifics of what is expected when conducting a search. (Reminder: all members of search committees should have participated in a short training session before starting a search.)

Feel free to consult with the Office of Institutional Equity at any time regarding any questions or issues that arise while conducting a search and hire
