Employee Hiring Guide

Stonehill College is committed to equal employment opportunity for all, regardless of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin or ancestry, genetic information, disability, status as a veteran, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other legally protected status.  The College recognizes that the entire academic enterprise is strengthened by enlarging its community of well-qualified individuals who serve as role models for our students. A commitment to equity and diversity broadens Stonehill’s cultural richness and enhances its vitality and reputation.

As an academic institution informed by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the College has the responsibility of attracting and retaining talented and aspiring individuals who can contribute in meaningful ways to the overall student experience. As such, supervisors are responsible for recruiting, supporting, assisting, mentoring, and retaining employees with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences, including those from traditionally underrepresented groups. The Human Resources and General Counsel’s Office staffs are available to assist supervisors in these activities.

The purpose of this hiring guide is to assist supervisors with filling vacancies and providing the means to ensure that every search provides each job seeker with equal access and opportunity throughout the process. The ultimate goal of the hiring process is to positively contribute to Stonehill’s effort to recruit, select, and retain candidates who will live out the mission of the College and enhance our workplace diversity relative to social identities, thought, and pedagogies of the College. This hiring guide is considered a “living” document and it is the goal of the Office of Human Resources to constantly improve and build upon the information contained in this guide.
