Faculty 100

Faculty 100

The Faculty 100 hiring initiative will add 100 new tenured and tenure-track faculty lines for the campus, amplifying and extending our success in research and teaching while positioning IU Bloomington as a continued local and global leader. This ambitious initiative gives the Bloomington campus a historic opportunity to bring in additional dynamic talent to bolster our already vibrant community. Following the guidelines below, Deans submitted prioritized proposals for consideration in November 2022.

In September of 2021, President Whitten announced the groundbreaking Presidential Diversity Hiring Initiative, which will invest $30 million into faculty diversity hiring. The IUB Faculty 100 initiative will proceed alongside and in addition to this ongoing, seven-year, university-wide plan.

Building on Our Success

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