Faculty Handbook

This Faculty Handbook is intended to serve as an orientation resource for new faculty members and as an ongoing reference guide for current faculty members. It provides information about the University of Virginia and the conditions of employment, benefits, and policies that are essential to the faculty experience. These policies are intended to support our faculty: an innovative, collaborative, and diverse group of scholars and educators.

As policies are continually revised and updated, readers should use the references in this handbook for general guidance only and should consult the policy itself for the most current and complete information.

The University of Virginia aims to foster a dynamic, cohesive community. We intend for this handbook to help each faculty member find and make use of the many opportunities and supportive programs the University offers. We welcome your feedback: provost@virginia.edu.

Executive Vice President and Provost
