Accomplishing this bold ambition will require the recruitment and retention of talented and diverse faculty, staff and students. The Office of Faculty Recruitment and Retention leads initiatives to promote the hiring and retention of outstanding and diverse faculty members; the development, implementation and interpretation of faculty policies; the promotion and tenure process; and academic leadership development programs.
