Inclusive Retention Roundtable

Sent March 19, 2024

Dear colleagues,

The University of Oregon’s ability to recruit and retain talented faculty directly impacts our mission as a public research university committed to exceptional teaching, discovery, and service. Faculty retention is a key priority at the University of Oregon. There are many reasons faculty choose to leave, of course, but we want to be sure their experiences at UO offer many reasons to stay.

We are pleased to invite all faculty, including unit heads, associate deans, and deans to the Inclusive Retention Roundtable on April 8 in the EMU Redwood Auditorium from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. to discuss the complexities and costs associated with retaining and recruiting quality faculty in higher education, with a specific focus on our university. Participants can expect to gain a comprehensive understanding of the issues, along with practical tools and strategies to enhance faculty retention efforts. Moreover, this session will provide a valuable opportunity for attendees to network, share insights, and learn from one another’s experiences.

Please RSVP by April 1 and pass this message along to the faculty in your unit. We sincerely hope to see you at this event.

Best regards,  
Troy Elias, Ph.D.
