Submit the Narrative Summary

Step 7: Submit the Narrative Summary

Form(s) Required: Narrative Summary Form 

The Narrative Summary Form (NS) must be approved before candidates can be invited for an official on-campus interview. The Narrative Summary documents the activities of the search committee—methods and actions taken to advertise the position, recruit applicants, and select Principal and Alternate candidates. This documentation is required to show that all appropriate equal employment opportunity and affirmative action initiatives have been taken to identify and consider a qualified diverse applicant pool. The NS Form should be reviewed and signed by all appropriate administrators. Also, the NS Form should provide the following information regarding the applicant pool:

  • If self-identified females have applied for the position, but none of the female candidates were selected for the Principal or Alternate pools, the committee must include a brief description of the strengths and weaknesses of each excluded self-identified female applicants; and
  • If self-identified racial minorities (African Americans, Native Americans, Asians, Hispanics/Latinos) have applied for the position, but none of the minority candidates were selected for the Principal or Alternate pools, the committee must include a brief description of the strengths and weaknesses of each excluded self-identified racial minority.
