Logging in to Faculty Hiring and Recruitment Tracking System (FHRTS) to initiate and process faculty searches and exemptions Navigating through the application and process Tips and tricks for working in the system Soliciting Applicant Information (formerly Appendix B) Graystone Group Information Training Objectives:
New Features of FHRTS: A search will flow as one document and will be viewed in terms of search components and not individual forms or appendices. Initiators information is pre-populated based upon their id and home organization code in Oracle and the whois database. Drop down boxes for selection of criteria in fields, for example organization numbers, are provided for easy population instead of typing. Assistance in adding committee members by populating all required information based on their last name or computing id. Information required for the previous e-forms appendices is the same on this system, except there is no race/sex/ethnicity information for candidates on the Pre-Offer Approval. Applicant demographic information will be handled through the Applicant Information Form (former Appendix B). All searches will be assigned a temporary reference number TMP-XXXX. Once approved by the Deans Office and EOP, a permanent number is assigned to the search, ACD-XXXX. (ACD means academic.) This same process happens for an exemption. It will have a TMP-XXXX number until approved. Then the permanent number will be EXM-XXXX. (EXM means exemption.) The correct routing of the information for approval is pre-programmed.

Tenure Status Definitions Tenured – Employed without term. Can only be terminated for cause. Tenure Track – Working toward Tenure or on the tenure track. Employees on the tenure track are hired initially on a three year contract. After successful completion of their third-year review, tenure employees are given a four year contract. In their sixth year (the third year of their second contract) tenure track employees have a promotion and tenure review. If they are granted tenure, their seventh year is the first year as a tenured faculty member. If they are denied tenure their seventh year is their final year of employment, as it is the fourth and final year of their second contract. Tenure Ineligible, with the Expectation of Continuation – Employees who have completed at least two, three-year contracts with satisfactory performance have an expectation of continued employment. This expectation is granted the first year after the completion of two contracts and the expectation of continued employment can not be earned before six years of satisfactory employment. Tenure Ineligible, without the Expectation of Continuation Possible – Temporary appointments for a set period of time, usually anywhere from a semester up to two years, where the faculty member does not ever have the expectation of continued employment. They usually sign a statement waiving their right to the expectation of continued employment. Tenure Ineligible, the Expectation of Continuation Possible – Employees who have not yet completed two contracts equaling six years of successful job performance, but who have the expectation of continuation once they meet the required time and performance standards.
