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.

The 2018 Institutional Hiring Plan was released in the spring of 2018. Units conducted searches in the 2018-19 academic year; as of mid-April 2019, 41 tenure-track faculty had been successfully hired through efforts related to the 2018 IHP.
