Recruitment & Retention
Discussion with a panel of senior faculty of color on why they have stayed at UVA.
The University is committed to principles of both equity and excellence in its hiring practices. In most cases, identifying the most qualified available candidates for a position requires that the position be advertised and competitively searched through the University’s recruiting technology.
The Office of for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights works closely with hiring officials, search chairs, managers, human resources representatives, and the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost to ensure that the University's recruitment, hiring, and other selection processes are conducted fairly and consistently.
A university is only as strong as its faculty. We strive to attract a group of faculty who are both talented and diverse, who are or will be leaders in their fields, and who are committed to both outstanding research and outstanding teaching.
