This recruitment page provides an overview of Wittenberg's notice of nondiscrimination, recruitment steps and procedures, and responsibilities for which the hiring supervisor will be accountable.
The hiring manager's role at the beginning of the hiring process is critical. Vacancies create an opportunity to rethink how departments go about getting work done. Hiring managers should strive to hire qualified, talented individuals who have an institutional fit and meet the current departmental needs, increase the representation of staff from diverse groups, and encourage career growth of current staff members.
Wittenberg's commitment to developing a diverse workforce prompts us to take positive steps to recruit, hire, train and promote qualified individuals from diverse backgrounds. For example, we must generate applications from members of minority groups, rather than simply waiting to receive them, be flexible in defining positions, and be willing to provide the necessary training and support. In this sense, diversity management goes beyond equal employment opportunity, which requires employers to eliminate discriminatory conditions.
The university's strength over our long history is based on the quality of our faculty, staff and students and their efforts to excel. Careful consideration and attention to the hiring process are essential to maintaining our standard of excellence.
