Create an EEO Form
Administrators in Faculty Search can create custom EEO forms. Admins can set the program to require the EEO form for all new positions, and designate a form as the default for all new positions created.
Faculty Search also provides Institutional Administrators with a standard, VEVRAA/503-compliant EEO form, available from the Administration page. The form can be used as is, or cloned and edited.
Administrators can see here for more information on how to create and edit a VEVRAA/503-compliant EEO form.

You can create five types of questions on EEO forms.
Text questions prompt applicants to respond with one line of text. These are best suited for short answer, free-form responses.
Provide applicants with an entire text box for their answer. Best suited for longer, paragraph-form responses.
Multiple Choice Questions
Presents multiple answers and applicants can choose one. This type of question can also work for True/False, Yes/No, and other binary questions. You can also provide applicants with a box for "Other," where they enter their own answer.
These provide applicants with multiple answer choices, of which they can choose one or more. You can provide applicants with a box for "Other," where they can enter their own answer.
Applicants can select one option per row. This type of question can be used to express preferences, e.g., which courses the applicant would like to teach.
Once your questions are added you can drag and drop to change the order in which they appear and also add formatting to customize how the form displays.
For more complex forms, we recommend including these elements for order and clarity:
- Section Divider: A simple horizontal line that can visually break up the form.
- Section Heading: A large-text label that can be placed atop a discrete section of your form.
- Section Description: Contextual text that can be tucked underneath a heading and above the actual questions.
