Faculty Excellence & Diversity Program (FEDP)
FEDP is designed to provide additional funding for tenure and tenure-track faculty positions without conflicting with established policies and procedures for conducting searches.
All activities associated with filling faculty positions must comply with existing search process policies and procedures.
Remember that hiring decisions cannot be based on a candidate’s protected class status. The FEDP application statement must not include reference to the candidate’s race, gender, ethnicity, etc.
Please feel free to contact a member of the Search Compliance Team at (860) 486-2943 if they can assist you in any way.
