Abstract:     
Most colleges and universities make faculty employment decision in an extremely decentralized system that relies heavily on subjective criteria. This system may meet the needs of an educational institution, but it also creates difficulty in detecting sexual discrimination. This article examines the unique decision-making process used in higher education, including the need to use subjective criteria, and analyzes court and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission decisions in this area. The article concludes by offering guidelines for ensuring that both the rights of faculty and the needs of institution are protected during the decision-making process.
