What is the status of UWM’s hiring freeze in light of the planned furloughs, and does the freeze affect positions that were already in the active recruitment process?

April 24, 2020
The hiring freeze announced by Chancellor Mone is not affected by UWM’s furlough plans. Yes, positions that are in an active recruitment should be passed through the process to reaffirm they should continue to be filled. HR business partners/preps are familiar with the process and can assist with its completion. Final authority to provide such approval rests with Provost Britz and Vice Chancellor Van Harpen.
