Our work in Faculty and Academic Affairs involves supporting all faculty ranging from new hires to those transitioning to emeritus status. We offer specific programming to support faculty as they first arrive at the University of Minnesota to ensure they thrive in our community. We offer programs and support for faculty in various leadership roles that will help them acclimate and succeed in their roles. We work with faculty and academic leaders by facilitating the promotion and tenure review process, and celebrating faculty members' outstanding accomplishments through numerous awards. We also collaborate with the Office for Equity and Diversity to help promote recruitment and retention of faculty; and we work with the Center for Educational Innovation and the Office of Measurement Services to provide resources to support teaching and learning. We are here to support faculty and advance their careers and disciplines in an inclusive environment.
