It is our pleasure to inform you that effective immediately, the staff hiring freeze initiated on September 10, 2020 has been discontinued. The Hiring Exception process will no longer be required to fill staff vacancies. This is a result of the better than expected budget outlook that we previously shared with you, and the conservative financial management of each of your divisions and departments over this past academic year.
Current pending hiring exception requests will be discarded and departments may proceed with their searches by initiating recruitment using the PageUp system. The approvals of Vice Presidents and Deans will still be required to initiate searches as they are responsible for monitoring hiring to ensure fiscal integrity. If you have any questions about the hiring process, please contact Kim Harris at (410) 455-2911 or Joe Michelizzi at (410) 455-2912.
On behalf of the Hiring Exception Committee, we would like to thank everyone for your support and patience during this process.
Provost Philip Rous
Vice President for Administration and Finance Lynne Schaefer
