The administrative and academic officers at the University of Texas Medical Branch are qualified in their respective positions and have the experience, competence, and capacity to lead the institution. The UT System Board of Regents selects the president of each institution after receiving recommendations of an Advisory Committee whose membership is defined by the Regentsí Rules (1). The Chancellor of the UT System Board of Regents delegates to the president of each institution the responsibility for appointment and dismissal of all other administrative officers of each institution, including vice presidents and deans, with the approval of the Systemís Executive Vice Chancellor (2). UTMB defines administrators as Chief Academic Officer, Deans, Department Chairs, Directors of Centers, Directors of Institutes, and Directors of all other academic units (3). All administrative and academic officers at the University are selected by search committees formed for the purpose of finding the best candidates to fill a particular vacancy. Information about search committees is posted on the web site for the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity (4). That Office reviews job postings to ensure minimum qualifications are bona fide occupational qualifications under federal guidelines.

The chair of the search committee is responsible for defining the selection criteria to be used to evaluate the qualifications of each applicant for the position. The benefits of using a search committee include multiple evaluations of applicants that provide greater opportunity for overall consistency of interpretation of credentials, employee participation in the hiring process, and more thorough screening of applicants.
