A Message From Academic Affairs


As we prepare for another busy season recruiting faculty in 22 tenure track searches across campus, David Snowball--working with the Office of Communication and Marketing--has recently updated our prospective faculty hiring site. On the site, you will find videos of (relatively) new faculty talking about their experiences on the updated site, and I thought you would like to have the opportunity to view those. The video library is here:

And the home page for the site is here:

I would be grateful for any suggestions you might have for the improvement of the site. We have had thousands of visitors from across the country--and, indeed, around the world--which of course was what we were hoping to see. --Jeff Abernathy
