Faculty Hiring Toolkit

Purpose of The Faculty Hiring Toolkit

The Faculty Hiring Toolkit, developed by Faculty Advancement and the Associate Provost for Academic Affairs, supports faculty searches at Montclair State University, providing Montclair State-specific information, a distillation of best practices, and materials for you to adopt and adapt. In keeping with Strategic Plan 2025 — Project Soar, the University’s recently adopted strategic plan, this toolkit emphasizes strategies for diversifying the faculty. Having a diverse faculty, reflective of our student population, is requisite but not sufficient to living up to the values of equity and inclusion in our teaching, research, and campus practices.

The Faculty Hiring Toolkit supplements the direct support for faculty hiring that is provided by Deans and their staff.

As we develop this resource, we will be looking for feedback from faculty and chairs. Please send that feedback directly to Emily Isaacs.
