Adding and Editing Required Materials for a Position
When creating or editing a position Administrators and Committee Managers can indicate the materials that must be submitted with all applications to the position. Applicants can upload these documents and submit them electronically when applying for the Faculty Search position through the "Apply Now" page for the position.
