Campus Selection process
The Campus FACET Selection Committee meets each year to aid nominees in preparing their application packets and then to determine which applicants are recommended to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs or Dean of the Faculties on the individual campus. The Campus Selection Committee will prepare a Campus Statement of Support for successful candidates on their campus; this statement will be forwarded to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs or Dean of Faculties for his or her endorsement. The Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs or Dean of Faculties will forward endorsed statements of support to the FACET office at:FACET
Bryan Hall, Room 203B
107 S. Indiana Ave
Bloomington, IN 47405
or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A copy of the statement of support forwarded to the FACET office should be provided to the candidate. The Statewide Selection Committee will NOT review any dossier that is not accompanied by an endorsed statement of support from the campus Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs/Dean of Faculties.
Recommended Campus Procedures:
Candidates submit their dossiers to their campus associate director(s). The committee uses the FACET Nominee Review Form during its process: the form helps the selection committees maintain consistency in applying FACET's selection criteria. Candidates may wish to use the review form in conjunction with guidance from their campus' Associate Director to focus their dossier preparation.
Each candidacy is considered based only on the materials in the dossier. It is essential that the dossier describe the candidate in a way that is concise and complete.
The campus selection committees may act on each candidacy in one of three ways:
- The committee may decide to forward the dossier for further consideration as it stands.
- The committee may suggest that the candidate make some additions or adjustments to the dossier and resubmit it before a final decision is made.
- The committee may decide not to support the candidacy. In this case, the campus selection committee chair will write to the candidate indicating the areas of the dossier needing strengthening.
The Campus Selection Committee shall use the Campus Statement of Support format to prepare a brief statement of support outlining the strengths of the candidate, based upon the dossier, and the impact of the candidate’s efforts in relation to teaching and student learning. This statement should only refer to information contained within the dossier. Ideally, this statement would highlight a broader, campus/community context that would assist the Statewide Selection Committee in understanding the importance of the candidate’s efforts.
