On January 19, 2022, the Provost announced additional measures to assist junior faculty members in the Academic Council Professoriate who continue to struggle with the impact of the pandemic. This support is especially intended for faculty members with young children and/or who have encountered serious research productivity setbacks. Click here for more details.
The Appointment and Reappointment Letters for Academic Staff and Other Teaching Staff have been updated to reflect the new Covid hiring requirements (11/15/2021).
