How will I be notified of my application status? You will be notified in the date ranges indicated in the Timeline, either by email or by phone.

How will I get reimbursed for my travel? During your visit, a member of the Human Resources team will provide you with the documents you need to complete for your reimbursement. Once you return the information to us, members of our Business Affairs team will process your reimbursement.

What is a "Home" visit? Representatives of Green River College will visit your current place of employment to get a better sense of your working style and relationships. We will arrange this meeting to ensure that our visit is minimally disruptive.

What should I expect in the Finalist Interview? The finalist interview will include (at a minimum) a campus forum and an interview with the Board of Trustees.  You will be meeting our entire campus that day.

What is a Campus Forum? Campus Forum is an all-college format allowing candidates to present a pre-determined topic to the campus community. The VPI Search Committee, in coordination with the College Administration, will select a topic and present it to all candidates in advance. Each candidate must present the same topic. The forum will be recorded and made available for community members who are not able to attend. All candidates will be given a set amount of presentation time, then will be allotted time to answer questions based on their presentation.

What if I have questions during the process? You can always ask.  We are here to help.  While your contact may change as your go through the process, you can always email hr@greenriver.edu and your question will be directed to the appropriate person for a response.
