Faculty Recruitment & Retention
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.

The honorary rank of professor emeritus or associate professor emeritus may be conferred upon senior academic faculty at the time of their retirement from the University to honor extraordinary contributions over the course of their careers.
From: Ian Baucom, Executive Vice President and Provost
I write to outline the 2022-23 faculty merit increase guidelines and process.
Given that the state has not approved a budget, I am asking schools to be flexible in their merit planning. Schools should use an average 5.0 percent increase, the average authorized by the University for the 2022-2023 merit cycle.
What is the purpose of the connection tool?
The tool provides a resource to UVA faculty and staff who are parents/guardians of young or school-aged children.
UVA post-docs, graduate and professional students, and medical residents and fellows are welcome to participate.
The tool facilitates connections with other UVA parents/guardians with similar needs and priorities, including:
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.
