Important items to remember when preparing your Ad or NOV:
The Employment Request Form (ERF) is used by HR to complete the hire of an employee. It initiates the process whereby an Appointment Form is generated and places the employee on payroll.
The Athletics unit includes both the men's and women's sports within the athletics unit. Under the current "Affirmative Action Plan for Employment Practices" anytime a vacancy occurs in the athletics unit, a search committee would be formulated by the unit as a whole. The following guidelines supplement and do not supplant either the "Affirmative Action Plan for Employment Practices" or the collective bargaining agreement between the Inter Faculty Organization and the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System.
Three levels of sports are set forth in the current IFO collective bargaining agreement:
When additional women's sports are added, a memorandum of agreement between the university and the Faculty Association will be completed addressing level placement.
Ordinarily, coach search advisory committees will be constituted as follows according to level. All head coach committees will have four members from the athletics unit; assistant coach committees will have three members from the athletics unit. If a sport is primarily for a particular gender, the distribution will be three from department members representing that gender and one from the other. This is for head coach positions. For assistant coach positions, two and one. If a coach is to be assigned either to a mixed gender team or if that person is to coach both a men's and women's team, an equal number of representatives will be selected from members of the male and female sports staff. Note: When in the opinion of the President, a variation in the committee structure will serve the best interests of the University and its Athletic programs, the President shall confer with the athletic director and unit and seek to reach consensus on any such variation.
Optional: Student member - individual should not be from the team to be coached.
