We want to ensure new employees have a smooth onboarding process and proper access to ACC systems to begin their instructional endeavors.

ACC offers two types of training for faculty hiring committee members. Participants will find that they can gain valuable information to support their hiring initiatives.
Faculty Hiring Process Training
This training provides committee chairs with an in-depth review of the faculty hiring process. It includes amendments to the hiring processes, essential tips, and guidance to ensure consistency in the college’s hiring practices and to meet state and federal guidelines and regulations. All faculty hiring committee chairs are required to participate in Hiring Process Training for Faculty.
Equity In Faculty Hiring (required for all committee members)
Equity in Faculty Hiring training is presented by ACC’s finest to ACC’s finest, its dedicated faculty. ACC aims to provide historically underrepresented populations equal access to growth opportunities and networks that help close the gap, from leadership levels to all aspects.
Faculty committee members who have never participated in ACC’s Equity training are asked to enroll in Equity ONE.
Equity TWO training is available for committee members who completed Equity ONE in the previous year.
Equity THREE training is for those who participated in Equity ONE and TWO in previous years.
Equity in Faculty Hiring is required for faculty hiring committee members, including committee chairs
