2018 Institutional Hiring Plan

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the AY2018 Institutional Hiring Plan, which details all approved tenure-track faculty searches for the 2018-19 academic year. As of today, this year’s plan authorizes 56 tenure-track faculty searches across the schools and colleges (39 new searches and 17 searches that will continue from this year, if needed).

I want to thank everyone who contributed time and effort to creating proposals and providing feedback. I appreciate the thought that went into crafting each proposal. Institutional Hiring Plan decisions were made in consultation with the Dean’s Council and the seven-member Provost’s Faculty Hiring Advisory Committee. I personally gave due consideration to each proposal before making the final authorizations to search. The full Institutional Hiring Plan and additional details on the process are available on the IHP webpage.

We are pleased with how the IHP process went this year, and welcome your feedback on how to further refine the process for future years.  Please share your input via this survey. 

Thank you again for your work to make the Institutional Hiring Plan a success that will help us achieve our collective goals in teaching, research, diversity and interdisciplinary excellence.
