Provost’s Cluster and Interdisciplinary Hiring Initiative Lightning Talk Series

In 2019 then Provost Mcinnis launched the Cluster and Interdisciplinary Hiring Initiative aimed at

  • enabling the campus to devote a critical mass of faculty to areas of knowledge that can only be addressed across existing departmental structures,
  • providing new research and scholarship tracks and collaborative opportunities,
  • addressing difficult contemporary problems,
  • encouraging and fostering cooperation among an already strong faculty and staff research body, and
  • assisting with the fulfillment of other priorities of the university, particularly increasing campus diversity.

Eight proposals were selected to receive institutional investment and support resulting in twenty-two new faculty hires. We hope you will join us throughout the spring semester for this lightning talk series where you will have the opportunity to meet our new faculty and learn about their exciting research endeavors.
