Faculty Hiring Timeline:  

Faculty hiring request list consists of 33 positions for 2016-2017, which includes:

  • 12 faculty growth positions. Espinosa-Pieb clarified to the group that Faculty Growth Positions are defined as positions that are not a result of a Faculty Obligation Number (FON) and also have been created without a retirement or resignation occurring in a department. For FHDA the growth positions must be 100% teaching, and serve the purpose of growing enrollment.
  • 6 vacant faculty positions - due to recent retirements and resignations (since February 2015).
  • 15 faculty positions from previous years that were lower ranked and were not filled.

Espinosa-Pieb announced that the College will be able to hire 18 faculty positions for 2016-17 academic year (12 growth and 6 vacant = 18).

To start faculty hiring earlier than previously, a new faculty hiring timeline was proposed. After a lengthily discussion the members agreed on the following:

  • Any dean who is interested in posting their job announcement before the winter break must go through their established department/division process to select faculty to serve on the committee, must have an EO Rep assigned and must get their request to the Academic Senate for approval by 8:00 am on Monday, November 30th “before” they create the job announcement.
  • IPBT committee was instructed to refer and share the documents “Hiring Data/Ranking 2016 – 2017” and “Faculty Position Justification 2016 – 2017” with their constituency groups in order to have the voting done by Friday, November 20th at 5:00 PM
  • IPBT website –
  • All retirement letters submitted in January 2016 would go on 2017-2018 faculty hiring list in Fall 2016.
