As Colorado State University navigates the challenges and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the following is guidance for searches and hiring at the present time and moving forward.

Units may continue to conduct all interviews, semifinalists, and finalists, via video. If a unit has a physical presence on one of the campuses and all members of the unit and stakeholders participating in interviews will be physically available on campus, the unit may conduct in-person interviews of finalists. It may be that a finalist may not wish to travel and/or interview in person. At this time, OEO will approve a mix of in-person and virtual interviews for finalists in a search. Though a mix of in-person and video interviews does not provide the consistency OEO seeks in searches, it is important for CSU to remain competitive in the current labor market as we seek to hire the best talent, thus, flexibility will be afforded.

Do not hesitate to contact the Office of Equal Opportunity for faculty and administrative professional searches at or (970) 491-5836 and the Employment Team in Human Resources for state classified searches at (970) 491-MyHR(6947) with any questions you may have.
