Climate Survey - Recruitment and Hiring


Most faculty members are satisfied or very satisfied with the overall hiring process including the quality of information about responsibilities associated with the position and their colleague’s efforts to meet and recruit them to UNT.  Faculty members are less satisfied with their initial salary, start-up package and the negotiation process.  African Americans and associate professors are somewhat less positive than others about hiring issues, as is the case for women.  Full professors are more likely than faculty at other ranks to report that hiring is conducted fairly in their department.  Men and women faculty of all ethnicities indicated there is no or very little recruitment of people with specific backgrounds or characteristics. However, the highest averages are on recruiting efforts for a diverse applicant pool.
