Request Waiver of the Search Process

To request a waiver of the affirmative action search process, for faculty and professional & scientific positions (P&S) the hiring department must complete the request for waiver form and submit a letter to Christina Berthel, Senior Director of Human Resources, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: This letter must include:

The reasons for the request.
The proposed position title and class code proposed.
The position description.
A copy of the résumé or curriculum vitae of the person for whom the waiver is sought.

The hiring department must include all the required documents listed on the waiver form and attach them to the letter sent to Christina Berthel, Senior Director of Human Resources, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This will then be submitted to EOD on behalf of the department.  

Two waiver forms have been added to e-forms and can be accessed by clicking on the following links:
