AP Recruit

The Academic Personnel Recruit System (AP Recruit) is a part of the Academic Personnel Systems for the University of California, Riverside. AP Recruit is a secure online academic employment recruitment management system, supporting the entire recruitment workflow from creation of a recruitment plan, application, reference gathering, reviewing by the search committee, and, finally, selecting a hired candidate. In 2011, as part of the UC Working Smarter Initiative, the University of California selected UCI's AP Recruit system for system-wide deployment at all 10 UC campuses. UCR will deploy APRecruit in the Fall of 2013.

At its core, the system will create a standard, paperless process for all academic searches. Some of the major features include:

  • Applicants can manage and monitor their application progress
  • References can log in and securely upload their letters of reference
  • Department analysts can easily set up new recruitments
  • Faculty search committees can quickly review applicants
  • Self-reported diversity data is available to the appropriate groups (roles)

More information about the UC Recruit System wide Initiative may be accessed on the UCI UCRecruit Project Site.

UCR Campus Deployment

UCR will conduct a pilot deployment of the AP Recruit system for the 2013-2014 Academic Year with six colleges/organizations participating. The pilot phase will prepare UCR to go live campus-wide with a more robust, fully featured version of the AP Recruit system that will be deployed to all UC campuses beginning in the 2014-2015 Academic year.
