Closing the Search

Closing the search is the final step in the faculty recruitment process. Upon receipt of the signed offer letter, the search will be closed and the position announcement will be removed from the UTEP Employment Opportunities webpage.  Or, if the search is identified as unsuccessful the respective Dean of the college will approve the position announcement to be removed from the UTEP Employment Opportunities webpage.

It is critical that applicant materials related to your search be retained in conjunction with state and federal records retention guidelines. You may contact Carmen Gonzalez, Records Analyst at 915-747-8726 or send her a message via email to for any questions you may have in regards to records retention. Please see below records retention checklist for further guidance.
