The 2019 Institutional Hiring Plan (IHP) was developed by Provost Jayanth Banavar, based on proposals from faculty and academic leadership, and in consultation with the Provost’s Deans Hiring Advisory Committee and the seven-member Provost’s Faculty Hiring Advisory Committee. It authorized tenure-track faculty searches for the 2019-20 academic year. Twenty tenure-track faculty were successfully hired through efforts related to the 2019 IHP.
This Institutional Hiring Plan continued the university’s efforts to hire tenure-track faculty who enhance the UO’s scholarly profile and academic excellence and who will share our commitment to student success; Provost Banavar asked deans to prioritize proposals that best fit the institution’s long-term goals for excellence, diversity, and overall institutional health. In addition to individual critical positions around campus, the 2019 IHP continued an emphasis on staffing up the Knight Campus and the interdisciplinary Presidential Initiative in Data Science, and launched searches for new campus leadership in Resilience and Human Physiology.
