New Faculty Profiles

Group of members in the Department of Faculty Development.

Dear Colleagues, 

It is always a pleasure to welcome a new cohort of faculty to our campus family. This year, thirty-seven new full-time faculty are joining us in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Engineering, Nursing and Health Sciences, Visual and Performing Arts, and School of Law. They represent a wide array of disciplines across colleges and schools. I want to congratulate our department search committees, chairs and deans in recruiting such a talented and diverse group of teachers and scholars.
