University Resources

Our mission in University of Arizona Faculty Affairs is to cultivate and connect institutional structures for faculty advancement across the career lifespan in alignment with the overarching mission and role of the University of Arizona. We take an ecosystem equity approach across all system levels that considers: (1) recruitment, (2) professional advancement, and (3) retention. Our work is grounded in an affirming, transparent, and inclusive approach to supporting faculty.

Faculty Support Programs

The University of Arizona faculty support programs draw on research on what faculty find most helpful in advancing their work, including Robert Boice’s influential “The New Faculty Member,” which examines how the work patterns of new faculty who are highly productive researchers differ from those who take longer to get started.
