Candidate Travel Guidelines:
If you are highly interested in a candidate that will need travel arrangements (flight, hotel stay, etc.) email email@example.com at least 2 weeks before you plan to have them on campus so we can schedule everything properly with our travel agency. It is up to one of the committee members to coordinate the pickup and drop off for the incoming candidate from the airport to the hotel.
Meal Policy for Interviews:
This policy is intended to provide general guidelines to Search Committee chairs regarding scheduling meals with candidates. The policy will ensure that all applicants receive a similar interview experience at Daemen College and allocates college resources in a prudent and responsible manner. The Office of Employee Engagement will only cover the expenses for 1 MEAL during the candidate's stay - whether that is breakfast, lunch, or dinner will be up to the committee to decide and confirm with Employee Engagement PRIOR to the interview. Other expenses will have to come out of the appropriate department/office budget.
Meals arranged by a Search Committee should be limited to a maximum of three members from the committee and the candidate (for a total of 4). Meals should be arranged through the Daemen Dining Service (Hallmark Management) and held in the Wick Center Executive Dining Room or other suitable location on-campus whenever possible.
The committee may arrange for one meal at a local restaurant for up to three members of the committee and the candidate if Daemen Dining Services is not an option for that interview date. An original itemized receipt must be submitted to the Business Office for reimbursement with an appropriate Purchase Requisition listing the details of the interview date/time/candidate name, who was in attendance for the meal from committee, etc. The receipt should indicate those present at the meal and the meal gratuity should not exceed 20% of the bill.
