Solicitation of letters of recommendation should occur only after an initial screening of candidates to minimize inconvenience to applicants and referees. Names of references may be requested, however.
In 2018, the AAA developed a new Comprehensive Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault, that requires field schools or other research experiences advertised on our website or through AAA-supported social media, draft and make available on demand a code of conduct prohibiting sexual assault and sexual harassment. Appropriate reporting mechanisms for those who do experience or witness sexual harassment or sexual assault will also be required.
Effective with the May 2000 edition of the AN, placement advertisements in the AN and on the AAA website will include statements about the hiring organization’s employment practices regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals. Advertisers will select the statement from each of the following sets that reflects their employment practices.
AAA will not be responsible for verifying accuracy of employer’s claims.
AAA will refuse to publish ads from employers that do not designate statements for inclusion with their ad.
Please note: the close date for ads to be placed in the May 2000 edition
The Association endorses equal opportunity practices and reserves the right to refuse or to edit advertisements that are not in consonance with the principles of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Applicants and employers are urged to comply with the provisions of the Principles of Professional Responsibility (2012). Advertisers are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of their listings, although the Association reserves the right to decline to publish listings which it believes are misleading or inconsistent with principles adopted by the Association. Placement Service listings of academic openings will not include requests for references with applications, by direction of the Board of Directors. Solicitation after determining initial interest is suggested to minimize inconvenience to applicants and referees. Names of references may be requested, however. Notice of censure action taken by the American Association of University Professors and the Canadian Association of University Teachers will appear when an institution advertising a position is under censure.
Be it resolved:
(Adopted by the Council of the AAA, June 1973)
