*EQUIVALENCY

The Ventura County Community College District, in its desire to select outstanding faculty members from the largest possible pool of qualified applicants, recognizes the fact that candidates may attain expertise in a discipline through a variety of means. Certain combinations of education, experience and other accomplishments in the field may be judged by the District as equal to the stated minimum qualifications for this position. Candidates whose transcripts do not list the title of their degree exactly as listed above, but feel they possess such equivalent qualifications are encouraged to complete and submit the https://www.vcccd.edu/sites/default/files/departments/human-resources/supplemental_questionnaire_for_equivalency_03.05.15_0.pdf https://get.adobe.com/reader/ https://get.adobe.com/reader/ with their application for review by the Districtwide Equivalency Committee.

Example:

Minimum Qualifications state: “Master's degree in agriculture”.

Candidate's transcripts state: “Master's degree in agricultural science”.

Since the degree on the candidate's transcripts in the example do not EXACTLY MATCH the degree listed in the minimum qualifications section, this candidate MUST complete the https://www.vcccd.edu/sites/default/files/departments/human-resources/supplemental_questionnaire_for_equivalency_03.05.15_0.pdf https://get.adobe.com/reader/ in order to be considered https://get.adobe.com/reader/. When completing the form, be sure to explain in detail how your qualifications are equivalent to the required minimum qualifications. Do not assume that you do not need to submit a Supplemental Questionnaire for Equivalency because your degree is similar to a degree stated in the minimum qualifications. Degree titles that are not an exact match will not be considered outside of the equivalency process.

The equivalency review is an independent process for district wide disciplines that is separate from the recruitment process to fill a vacancy. A subcommittee of discipline experts that is coordinated by an Academic Senate President will review the equivalency materials and make a recommendation as to whether or not the applicant demonstrated they have qualifications that are equivalent to those shown in the minimum qualifications section of the job posting. For disciplines that are unique to a specific campus the equivalency may be done by the hiring committee along with an Academic Senate President. Please be aware that the hiring committee may not be able to wait for the results from the equivalency review due to various time constraints and may need to move forward with the recruitment process.

For further details regarding equivalency and the criteria by which equivalency may be granted, please review https://go.boarddocs.com/ca/vcccd/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=83LDBP0DD9E5 and https://go.boarddocs.com/ca/vcccd/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=88NT6K75D7D6.
