Tenure-Track Faculty Hires

All tenure-track searches could result in the hiring of an international faculty. Therefore, it is imperative that all steps during the hire are well-documented so that the college can sponsor the petition for an H-1B visa and permanent residency when needed.

Record keeping for Tenure-Track Hires

The following records will need to be maintained for all tenure-track faculty searches:

  • Job description (includes minimum educational requirement)
  • Hard and digital copies of position advertisements, including start and end dates of the posting, the title of the journal(s), newspaper(s), and websites where the posting was advertised
  • Invoices for job posting
  • A search committee report
  • A list of all applicants, including the reason(s) why each candidate was rejected (e.g., no Ph.D.)
  • A list of applicants selected for preliminary interviews (e.g., phone or conference interview), including the reason(s) why each candidate did not advance to an on-campus interview
  • A list of applicants selected for on-campus interviews
  • An explanation about why the selected candidate was chosen over other finalists, listing the qualifications and achievements of the selected candidate and how these match the required and preferred criteria in the job description
  • Copies of the selected candidate's CV, diploma, transcript, and other related professional credentials

Please contact Marlene Arnold, Assistant Director of International Student & Scholar Services, with any questions: marnold@coloradocollege.edu or 719-389-6281.
