Clarifying, disseminating, and enhancing policies related to faculty recruitment, retention, and development is an important step toward improving climate on campus. To this end, members of the UD ADVANCE leadership team partner with faculty, administrators, the Faculty Senate, and AAUP-UD to revise, update, and communicate relevant policies.
- Family-friendly policies for faculty We developed a brochure to consolidate and highlight UD’s family-friendly policies. Language is from the Faculty Handbook and Collective Bargaining Agreement.
- Dual-career hiring We worked with the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs and an appointed committee to formalize a protocol for dual-career hires, which is being disseminated via a brochure and in meetings with chairs and deans. Read more about UD ADVANCE’s work with dual-career hiring at UD.
