Indiana Conference of Higher Education Agreement

The University of Notre Dame, along with all other institutions of higher education in Indiana, adheres to this long-standing resolution:

To eliminate possible misunderstandings over staff recruitment and to avoid charges of unfair raiding of one another’s faculties, we affirm the traditional inter-institutional protocol under which no institution shall approach the faculty members of other Indiana institutions of higher learning concerning either full-time or part-time appointments without prior consultation with the President of the other institution or his designated representative and we urge that all subordinate administrative officers and the faculty members themselves be made fully aware of the fact that this is the accepted pattern of action on such matters among the Indiana colleges and universities
