UC Recruit Fields of Study is a list of possible Fields of Study chosen at the time a recruitment plan is created. While at least one Field is required at the time of recruitment plan creation, we encourage the inclusion of other Fields to account for additional availability figures from various disciplines.

Placement Goals includes the job groups, whether or not a goal was set and, if a goal was set, what the goal was for each of the minority and female categories. The Placement Goal table should be used to address the Diversity, Affirmative Action Goal section of the Recruitment Plan for Academic Vacancies.
