Resources for Successful Searches

Welcome to the University of Missouri System recruitment and selection resources. This website is designed for anyone involved in a search.  There is something for everyone – for staff who may provide support to a search committee/chair, or the search committee members who want to be sure they are working smarter and being thorough, or just curious people who are interested in attracting and selecting high quality, diverse talent.  All will be able to find something that caters to their needs.   

The website includes webinars that are designed to provide an overview of the search process, highlights of best practices among our very own, and a tool kit that details a cadre of resources to take you step-by-step through all the stages of your search from laying the groundwork to screening applicants and making a final selection decision.

We hope you will find this to be a useful resource as you seek quality talent.  Should you not find what you need, please let us know at We are working to continuously improve this resource to meet the needs of the university community.
