Academic Recruitment

The Academic Recruitment Guide was developed as a tool for Search & Screen Committees to aid in the academic search authorization process. The Guide is provided by the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Programs (EOAA), to assist the user in understanding the electronic authorization process for faculty and executive administration staff positions via the - Academic portal. Only those individuals designated as Initiators in the system will have access to create edocs in the system. If your department requires Initiator access please call the office at 219-980-6705.

New to the search and screen process?  For faculty positions, to begin the approval process a Vacancy Notice (available in - Academic Portal) must be completed by either the Chairperson or the Chairperson's designee.  Position announcements must be completed via PeopleAdmin (available in - PeopleAdmin Portal) the on-line application system.   For Vacancy Notices, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Programs at 219-980-6705 with questions.  For position announcements and questions related to PeopleAdmin, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs 219-980-6707.
