My point exactly, it is not really the NA/RA issue that will be raised in academic selection but the reputation of the institutions where the candidate has worked or gotten his or her education (besides multiple issues as publications, teaching experience, etc). As the academic community knows very well the number of Universities conducting relevant research worldwide. It would become apparent that more than one member of a hiring committee should be aware of a foreign institution if it has some reputation in the field being hired. If the candidate has worked in prestigious institutions, the origin of the PhD would become less of an issue. When it comes to CCU, I would think that in the event that someone applies to a faculty position in Canada with this degree, unless the individual already worked at prestigious institutions or has impressive research the hiring committee would not be able to determine the quality of the candidate as the school is only known in the DL circles. I would think that in this case, the hiring committee would keep the resume of the CCU graduate in the lower priority pile. If there is no one available to teach a course and an individual shows experience in the field and some teaching experience, he or she might still be considered in spite of being a CCU graduate and the status of school verified before an offer can be issued. However, this happens rarely if ever.
