In the process of an appointment the dean/director of the college/library will verify the preferred candidate’s previous experience and performance with administrative officers for whom the candidate has previously worked. Prior consultation by the dean or director with the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs will verify that the candidate is indeed qualified and that the individual is the most suitable candidate for the position that has been properly publicized.
The dean or director will attach a letter of recommendation incorporating elements for rank and salary. It is to be clearly understood at all stages of negotiations that the President of the University has the sole power to recommend to the Board of Regents, and that the Board is the agent with the power to appoint. The institution cannot honor commitments from any other officer. For full coverage of this policy, please see The Texas State University System, Board of Regents’ Rules and Regulations, Chapter V, Subsection 4.13 “Appointments”, the Academic Policy Statement 041020, “Appointment of Clinical Faculty Members” and 911106, “Appointment of Visiting Scholars”.
