Sample Acknowledgement Message

(with required Clery Act notification)

Dear Dr. Candidate:

Thank you for your expression of interest in our position at Kalamazoo College. We are very excited about our search, and look forward to welcoming a new colleague to our department next fall.

This would be a good time for you to be certain that you have submitted all required materials for the search. We will not be able to send out reminders to candidates who do not have complete files, and incomplete files will not receive full consideration. We expect that our preliminary examination of the files will begin shortly after the closing date of XXXXX, and hope to invite candidates to come to campus in TIME PERIOD.

We will be in touch again as we move forward in the search process.


W. Robert Batsell
Chair, Department of Psychology
