Hiring Approvals

Tenure System, Specialized Faculty, and Academic Professionals

Your search process must receive pre-approval through the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Access (ODEA) and the HireTouch Hiring Request Form.  Information may be found at http://diversity.illinois.edu/hiretouch.html.

The paper Hiring Request form has been replaced by a workflow in the  HireTouch system. We now have a Guidelines document as well as a Job Aid for using the new form in HireTouch.  Once your vacancy has posted to jobs.illinois.edu, everyone subscribed to the AC job listserv will receive an email announcing your vacancy.

The ODEA website should be consulted for information regarding the search processes and procedures.

Guidelines for Hiring International Employees
When an international person is being considered for a position, the unit’s liaison with the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) office should consult with ISSS. Although ISSS will discuss procedures and options with faculty members and international visitors, a particular procedure can only be initiated by the contact person with authorization of the department head. For more details, and to ensure you follow all procedures and processes, please refer to the links below. Also included below is a link for important information about the Social Security Card Application process for your potential new employee.
