The 2017 Institutional Hiring Plan (IHP) was developed by then-Provost Scott Coltrane, based on proposals from faculty and academic leadership, and in consultation with Dean’s Council and the seven-member provost’s Faculty Hiring Advisory Committee. It authorized tenure-track faculty searches for the 2017-18 academic year. As of October 2018, 61 tenure-track faculty had been successfully hired through efforts related to the 2017 IHP.
Highlights of the 2017 IHP included synergies around creating or enhancing strength in computational science, environmental humanities, global cultures, the study of social inequality, transportation/urbanization, and other areas coalesced into interdisciplinary hiring themes. The plan also reflects the university’s ongoing commitment to established clusters like Energy and Sustainable Materials, Genome Function, Neurons to Minds, and Volcanology.
