Support for Faculty Recruitment & Retention

Recruitment and Retention of Faculty

Faculty members must submit applicant pool forms directly to Early Care and Education. Please note: departments cannot submit applicant pool forms on behalf of faculty members. Placement of any child in the program is determined first of all by the availability of an age-appropriate space. This requirement is determined by state regulation and is not negotiable.

Priority consideration for faculty recruitment and retention is dependent on departmental nomination through the Dean's Office (Professional Schools) or the Executive Dean of The College (formerly The College of Letters and Science). If you wish to be considered for priority with the Professional Schools or The College, you are responsible for notifying your department that you are applying for child care (ECE will not notify your department). The request for priority placement goes from the department to the Dean's office.

Faculty members often ask if their department can write a letter of recommendation or a letter of support on the family's behalf. Any letter of recommendation should be sent to the Dean's Office (Professional Schools) or the Executive Dean's Office (The College). No letters of recommendation should be sent directly to Early Care and Education or to the Dean's Office at the David Geffen School of Medicine, which prioritizes by applicant pool date only on a first come, first served basis. Only the offices named above for the Professional Schools and The College manage lists for priority placement.
