Reminder for Supervisors and Hiring Managers

You are a diverse individual with unique perspectives, and Towson University appreciates your energy and commitment to going the extra mile in supporting the university’s success!

If you are a supervisor, a hiring manager or a search committee chairperson with responsibility for oversight of a search process, maintaining an open mind is essential. Assist others who are involved in the search process to help you cast a wide net for highly-qualified applicants with diverse backgrounds.  Provide applicants with a warm welcome when they come to campus, and encourage them to join TU’s world class employee team!

Towson University’s mission includes providing equal employment opportunity as a vital component of creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive campus environment. TU values diversity and fosters an institutional climate that is grounded in respect and inclusion, enriches the educational experience of its students, supports positive workplace environments for staff and faculty members and students, promotes excellence, and cultivates the intellectual and personal growth of members of TU’s community.

Remember, if your hiring committee/interview panel is not diverse or you don’t have at least three candidates selected for interviews, contact your OHR recruiter prior to scheduling interviews. Additionally, please be mindful of all applicable TU policies, including its Policy on Employment of Members of the Same Family (Nepotism) throughout the entire recruitment process, including hiring committee/interview panel selection.

Please be certain to include Towson University’s EEO statement on all vacancy announcements:

Towson University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and has a strong institutional commitment to diversity. Women, minorities, persons with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
