The Search Process for Exempt Professionals and Faculty
For Classified Staff positions, please see The Search Process for Classified Staff.

An open competitive search process will be conducted to fill all positions  unless an applicable search waiver request is approved. All searches must be conducted in a timely and professional manner that respects the rights of candidates to confidentiality, to the extent permitted by law. In addition, it is critical that applicants receive a positive impression of the campus throughout the search and hiring process. To attract a highly qualified and diverse applicant pool, outreach and recruitment efforts must follow the UCCS Diversity Strategic Plan and Affirmative Action Plan.
