Tenure Track Search Checklist and Recruitment Packet

Department Chairs and School Directors can find Tenure Track search materials (job advertisement, position description and recruitment/outreach plan templates) on the SFSU Chairs iLearn page.

The Tenure Track Recruitment Request Form has been transferred to DocuSign and no longer needs to be submitted with the department's initial search materials; the form will be routed to department chairs once the search materials have been approved.

Take an Implicit Association Test (IAT)

We recommend that search committee members take at least one implicit association test. Registration is free, and the first test takes around 15 minutes. The tests are not meant to challenge your conscious attitudes, but to identify and reveal, for example, the extent to which you may nevertheless associate groups like “female” with “family” and “male” with “career".
