Applicability  

With appropriate justification, a waiver of the affirmative action search process may be granted for a faculty or professional and scientific (P&S) position. 

Policy Purpose and Description  

The University of Iowa’s search procedures for faculty and professional and scientific (P&S) positions are designed to meet all applicable federal and state laws and regulations and university policies regarding equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. Deviations from these procedures are therefore strongly discouraged. Exceptions to these procedures will be made only upon careful review by the office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity and the Compensation and Classification Unit of Human Resources.
