Faculty members are central to the School’s success as dedicated educators, groundbreaking researchers, and vital mentors to the next generation. We are committed to recruiting top academics with diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to scholarship, teaching, and service that embraces and engages the full measure of the diversity of our society. We are also making substantial new efforts to support faculty doing outstanding work by committing significant resources over the next decade to a new faculty fellowship program. These new fellowships provide flexible funding over five years to further a faculty member’s research and scholarship. We are announcing the first nine fellows this fall, with even more to be awarded by 2030. We similarly anticipate establishing new professorships and chairs through Impact 2030 and a campus-wide Morgridge Match program.
