Services DEI Provides


Search Process Review and Forms

Binghamton University and the Research Foundation of SUNY are employers conducting business with the United States Federal Government, filing funding requests over $1,000,000. DEI enforces the provisions of Executive Order 11246 as amended with oversight provided by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. DEI strives to educate the campus constituency at Binghamton University about the importance of non-discriminatory practices, employing policies and changes that encourage diversity and fairness in our search processes, fostering civility and an increase in productivity that indemnifies our status as a premier institution of higher education.

Search Process Review

Diversity recruitment and hiring are integral parts of Binghamton University's strategic priority to foster a campus that is more diverse, equitable and inclusive. To achieve these aims, please refer to the following resources to help guide hiring officers and search committee members.

Search committees are encouraged to meet with the Department Chair to communicate to the entire committee what skill sets will be sought in the search process. This is also a great meeting to determine a potential list of questions for each candidate based on the essential skill sets for the position. These skill sets should also be apparent in the required and preferred skills listed in the job description. A comprehensive job description, skill set checklist, an EEOC/AA statement, and a list of venues by which the search will be publicized should be submitted to DEI along with the Part I Notice of Vacancy Form.

Important Update

Please note that disposition codes for each applicant and notes must be completed in Interview Exchange (IE). Approvals for hires and closing out searches will depend on the completion of these sections.

For questions or assistance on the search review process, please contact the division at or 607-777-4775.
