Faculty 100 Phase 1

Faculty 100

Phase 1: Complete

Phase one of Faculty 100 will focused on the recruitment of up to 25 mid-career hires whose research portfolios synergize closely with current and emerging faculty strengths. This initiative was open to all schools, colleges, and disciplines; the funding was available to established departments and schools as well as to imaginative and interdisciplinary areas of opportunity. The primary goal for this phase was to further grow our research and creative activity in areas of established and emerging strength.

Hiring for the remaining lines from the Faculty 100, beyond these initial hires, will align with priorities and research areas identified through the IUB 2030 strategic planning process.
