Staffing Initiative to Create 25 Shared Tenure Related Positions.
In 07-08 University Studies initiated a staffing proposal to create twenty-five, tenure-related positions over three years. The initiative was designed to facilitate shared hiring by the University Studies program and academic units by providing full salary support on an indefinite basis for specific faculty hires. The table summarizes the full set of positions awarded through this initiative. The positions with one asterisk are the ones awarded this year, the final phase of the initiative. In all, 17 positions were appointed as the result of national searches and 8 were created through the conversion of fixed-term positions in University Studies.
