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 represents a push 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 2017 Institutional Hiring Plan was released in the spring of 2017 and included over 60 tenure-track faculty searches across the schools and colleges. 

In October 2017, the provost initiated the process for the 2018 Institutional Hiring Plan. The 2018 plan is currently in the school/college proposal phase. Deans will work with their faculty to develop proposals for review by March 9, 2018. The deans and a group of senior faculty members will review proposals and provide feedback before the provost announces the final 2018 IHP in early May.
