Provost releases UO Institutional Hiring Plan

May 18, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the AY2021 Institutional Hiring Plan, which details all approved tenure-track faculty searches for the 2021-22 academic year. As of today, this year’s plan authorizes 34 tenure-track faculty searches.

I want to thank everyone who contributed time and effort to creating proposals and providing feedback. I appreciate the thought that went into crafting each proposal. Institutional Hiring Plan decisions were made in consultation with the Provost’s Deans Hiring Advisory Committee, the seven-member Provost’s Faculty Hiring Advisory Committee, and the Active Recruitment Team. I personally gave due consideration to each proposal before making the final authorizations to search. You can view the full Institutional Hiring Plan and additional details on the process here.

The IHP was designed to bring our campus together in conversation to strategically address needs and institutional priorities. This year’s IHP showcases the strengths of this process, supporting areas where there is great need, as well as investing in cross-campus collaborations in Brand Strategy (LCB) and Brand Responsibility (SOJC); in Psychology, an area of strength, educational impact, and research excellence where the department faculty have created an ambitious plan to grow a focus on diversity; and in the emergence of Native American and Indigenous Studies, a group of searches that were proposed through creative collaboration across units, with a cluster emerging through the advisory committee process.

We are pleased with how the IHP process went this year, and welcome your feedback on how to further refine the process for future years. Please share your input via this survey.

Thank you all helping us achieve our collective goals in teaching, research, diversity, and interdisciplinary excellence.


Patrick Phillips
Provost and Senior Vice President
