CAS Policies and Procedures

Hiring and Staffing

The College of Agricultural Sciences (College) developed a series of policy documents covering staffing, recruiting, and current employee human resource actions for administrative leaders, academic-ranked faculty (tenured, tenure-track, non-tenure-track professorial ranks; research associates; faculty research assistants; and instructors), and staff.  This manual consolidates all College policies into a single document and eliminates the duplication among individual documents. The manual is arranged into three primary sections.  First, a section explains where the College applies and acts concerning our commitment to diversity and community. The second section on staffing and recruitment covers submitting a request for a position, initial posting, the interview process, salary negotiations, and developing a letter of offer. The third section covers current employee human resource actions and policies for faculty after they begin their position, but does not cover routine HR actions such as timesheets, PAR forms, job change forms, etc. Additional information and expectations for academically ranked faculty can be found in the Collective Bargaining Agreement between Oregon State University and the United Academics of Oregon State University.

These represent the College of Agricultural Sciences’ guidelines. All efforts have been made to ensure they augment and do not conflict with University Policies and Standards. If they conflict, the University Policies and Standards supersede these guidelines.
