under construction and in draft form
A faculty search is usually initiated near the beginning of an academic year and concludes toward the end of Winter quarter, by which time a leading job candidate usually emerges and the search process gives way to a faculty appointment process (to be linked). But the search process is actually initiated in the preceding Spring, when--usually in April--the Dean sends department chairs and DLCL managers a memorandum regarding search requests, which typically includes a summary of the billets already assigned to the department as well as a search request form, for which a submission deadline is provided.
A sketch of the search request process is below. Further down the page, you can review a sketch of the search process itself, and faculty search checklists are supplied as downloadable documents.
Search request process
Because the DLCL'S Assistant Manager coordinates faculty searches, appointments and promotions at the Divisional level, he or she usually works with department chairs to coordinate search requests for all departments in the DLCL.
Some additional notes:
In Spring 2007, H&S distributed revised versions of School policies regarding special allocations--funding mechanisms used to support various purchases by faculty and by departments. PDFs are provided of these revivsed policy documents here.
Guest Wireless Access
This is for DLCL guests that do not have a SUNetID. Anyone with a SUNet, any admin or DLCL staffer, can go to this ITS site, and give the guest a temporary login for the wireless network:
Permanent or sponsored access
To give network access to a professor's or visitor's computer, we have to register them in NetDB. This is done with a HelpSU ticket, but this process will go faster if you can provide the information below to Zach:
( " ) SUNET ID
( " ) department
( " ) Building and office number
Computer make/model (e.g. Dell Inspiron, or Apple MacBook)
Operating System (e.g. Windows XP, or Mac OSX)
Hardware addresses (a.k.a MAC address)
The only real technical part of this process is obtaining the internal hardware address (MAC address) for both ethernet and wireless. These numbers are 12 digits, 6 pairs of two (letters or numbers, separated by colons - e.g. 00:01:9f:e9:67:a4)
Select the blue Apple Icon at the top menu bar
Choose About this Mac > More Info
This launches the System profiler application
From the left, choose Network > Location(s)
Get the MAC (hardware) address for wireless (Airport) and ethernet
There are extra MAC addresses -- for Bluetooth, Firewire, Internal Modem. For the HelpSU ticket you only need the Ethernet and Wireless numbers, ignore the rest.
Get a command line prompt, either from the Run command, or by launching Applications > Utilities > System > MSDos Prompt
From the command line, type:
Look for the MAC numbers, and ignore the rest.
