This site, produced by the dean’s office, answers faculty questions about new faculty, department chairs, leaves, grants, academic governance, and committees. The dean’s office helps ensure faculty members have what they need for their work, addresses challenges and problems, helps advance ideas for positive change, and helps manage the academic budget. We support individual professional aims while looking out for the quality of each academic program and the diversity represented on campus.


Free public events will feature prominent speakers on race and social justice.
