Assign a User the Committee Manager Role

Committee Managers supervise searches at the department level. Among other functions, Committee Managers can create users, edit settings and statuses, view reports, communicate with candidates, and evaluate applications. A new user can be added to the program with the role of Committee Manager, or an existing user can be edited to have their role changed to that of Committee Manager.

When made a Committee Manager, a user becomes available to manage search committees at or below the organizational unit to which they have been assigned.

This article explains how to make an existing user a Committee Manager by editing their role in the program, but the process of assigning the Committee Manager role is the same when "Adding New Users" to Faculty Search.

Users are managed from the Users & Units page
