Search Committee Code of Conduct

Yesterday I commented on an interesting blog written by Allison Vaillancourt, PhD., VP HR at the University of Arizona—-here is the link to her blog

Allison’s blog received over 50 comments from various professionals at universities ( primarily) involved with the search process. Dr Vaillancourt’s idea that it is perhaps time for a “Code of Conduct” for search committees to observe. This makes some real sense if for no other reason than to let committee chairs and members know that there are basic ground rules that will be productive for them to follow. Good rules, generally help everyone — and, of course, in a civil society no matter how great it might seem to think that ultimate freedom = no laws—that notion went out sometime before Hammurabi.

Where Academia Meets Corporate Innovation: KULPER & COMPANY

As an owner of my own executive search firm for close to 15 years, I am always working at developing my search practice. Deciding which areas to focus on is a key concern.
