The Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer upholds the highest academic and intellectual quality standards through oversight of faculty appointments as well as the promotion and tenure process.
Through a series of workshops, administrators are provided opportunities to learn new skills which can be applied to facilitating the recruitment, development, mentoring, and retention of the highest-caliber faculty. Leadership, training, and guidance in the development and implementation of policies and procedures relating to academic personnel reveal IUPUI’s commitment to improving the work life and academic environment of its faculty.
Events for new and junior faculty, department chairs, and associate deans help with the development of talented and diverse faculty in their transition to IUPUI and their professional growth. Workshops include sessions on leadership, higher education, legal and ethical issues, fiscal stewardship, personnel development, and other topics pertinent to junior faculty and leaders alike.
