Instructions for FY 2024 Hiring Plan Submissions

The hiring plan process asks each school to forecast their hiring needs for the upcoming faculty recruitment cycle. Faculty hiring plans will be reviewed and approved by the provost’s office on a rolling basis. All hiring plans should be submitted by October 31, 2023. While we anticipate the majority of salaried faculty positions will be included in the hiring plan, we recognize the need for an off-cycle hire may arise.
