From the Provost

The University of Chicago’s Faculty Development Program supports scholars, builds a collaborative community, and maintains an environment where you can thrive.

Message from the Provost

The distinctive culture at the University of Chicago, rooted in academic excellence and rigorous pursuit of knowledge, is a reflection of the people who come to study, research, and teach here. We take pride in identifying and recruiting talented scholars whose passion, intellect, and creativity helps shape and define new fields and educate high-achieving students. The UChicago Faculty Development Program exists to strengthen your professional growth and success as scholars, educators, and members of the campus and local community. 

The program is designed to meet the needs of our academics throughout their career by providing opportunities to learn from peers and outside experts, as well as to experience our campus and community. Whether you are seeking information about relocating to the Chicago/Hyde Park area, the tenure process, resources to hone your leadership skills, or ways to meet new colleagues, the Faculty Development Program can help. 

I encourage you to take advantage of all the program has to offer.
