Screening Applicants and Conducting Interviews

Each search committee will screen all applicants and conduct interviews with their top candidates. Below are a few important requirements to keep in mind:

  • For all Faculty (not including Lecturers) and Academic Staff job postings, the search committee will have a checklist of responsibilities to follow.
  • For all other positions, the search committee must consist of a minimum of two people.
  • KU encourages and promotes a consistent and equitable interviewing process for all candidates.
  • Candidates selected for interview must meet all required qualifications as posted in the position announcement.

Recommendations for the Search Committee in Preparing for the Interview:

If you require supplemental activities (i.e., assessments, skill exercise, presentation) during the interview process, contact the Talent Acquisition Team for review, approval, and suggestions of how to format certain activities for greater accessibility (i.e., closed captioning) for all participants.
