73 p. 

The central issues and processes of recruiting and retaining college faculty are examined in the context of managing human resources and the principles of fair employment. Although attention is focused on the needs of department or division heads, the analysis may be helpful to administrations with responsibility for recruiting faculty. The following stages of the recruitment process are addressed: receiving notification of a vacant position, receiving the authorization to recruit, determining salary, organizing the recruitment effort, screening applicants' files, conducting campus visits, and making an offer. Attention is directed to vacancies resulting from retirement, involuntary separation, negative decisions about promotion and tenure, contract termination, and disability or death. Affirmative action search guidelines are presented, along with a list of items that should be contained in job vacancy advertisements. The screening process is discussed in regard to: excluding ineligible applicants, identifying candidates who have received some preferential attention, and evaluating nominees' files. With regard to the need to retain qualified faculty, the following issues are briefly discussed: orientation, professional development, periodic counseling, and mentorship. A substantial bibliography is included. (SW)
