Institutional Hiring Plan

The Institutional Hiring Plan (IHP) guides tenure-track faculty hiring at the University of Oregon. The plan provides holistic focus on the university’s most strategic and important goals, within a comprehensive vision of the university’s research and teaching mission. Based on campus priorities, with input from faculty, the plan continues the university’s efforts to hire tenure-track faculty who will enhance the UO’s scholarly profile and academic excellence and who will share our commitment to student success.

In fall of 2018, the Office of the Provost put forward the call for proposals that will be considered for the 2019 Institutional Hiring Plan, which will guide the 2019-20 search year.

After careful consideration and consultation with the Dean’s Council and the seven-member Provost’s Faculty Hiring Advisory Committee, Provost Banavar announced the 2018 Institutional Hiring Plan in the spring of 2018. The 2018 IHP includes over 50 tenure-track faculty searches that are being conducted across the schools and colleges this academic year (2018-19).

The 2017 Institutional Hiring Plan was released in the spring of 2017, and units conducted searches in the 2017-18 academic year. As of October 2018, those searches have resulted in the successful hires of 61 new tenure-track faculty members.

Typical IHP Timeline

The IHP timeline process begins in the fall with a call for proposals, and includes several stages of input and review before the provost announces the final IHP in the spring. Approved searches are conducted throughout the following academic year.
