Faculty Hiring

The University of Connecticut has embarked on an ambitious, multi-year hiring initiative to expand its faculty and senior academic leadership across numerous academic disciplines.

This four-year investment in 500 tenure-track faculty positions is poised to:

  • Build on the institution's existing strengths and grow new expertise in strategic areas by hiring talented scholars within a targeted selection of academic departments;
  • Boost the University's research productivity;
  • Provide outstanding teaching and service to UConn students; and
  • Continue the transformation that has led the University to stand among the nation's leading public research universities.

The University is seeking academic deans and tenure-track faculty with expertise across many traditional areas, as we implement Next Generation Connecticut and our Academic Plan.
