equity office search

With most faculty on nine-month contracts, professors are generally not on campus during the summer, usually off on research or teaching assignments. It is a mistake to conduct important job searches during the summer because most of the faculty who would like to be involved in order to provide input are simply not around to do so. Because of recent controversies surrounding the Equity Office, and because the directorship is being changed to an Associate Vice Chancellorship, conducting the search during the summer, as is being done, is a mistake guaranteed to minimize faculty involvement and therefore faculty governance. One would hope that somehow this search gets postponed to the Fall when faculty return.
