The Office of the Provost is pleased to invite semi-annual requests for proposals for funding from the Provost Investment Fund (PIF). It is designed to ensure that we can be nimble and proactive in funding high-impact projects that align with the University’s strategic goals and support our ambitions for institutional excellence and distinctiveness. Funding comes from the annual allocation from the Activity Informed Budgeting (AIB) model.
Salary Equity Review for Tenure / Tenure Eligible Faculty
The University of Arizona is deeply committed to paying comparable salaries for comparable work for all of its employees, regardless of gender, race and ethnicity. Accordingly, we have recently completed a comprehensive review of base salary among tenured and tenure-eligible (T/TE) faculty. The notices of salary adjustments were issued to affected faculty directly during the week of 9 March 2020. We are working towards similar reviews of salary among career track and continuing status faculty in the near future.
The Student Success District is the place that drives students’ 24/7 development through an array of student support services and spaces based on collaborative, hands-on learning with deep technological engagement. The nine-acre District is also uniquely situated in one easy-to-find location on the University campus. Inspired by student input, we are committed to ensuring that the district provides all students with seamless access to the resources and expertise they need to reach their academic and career goals.
As students’ academic needs evolve and the world grows more complex, it is clear that the opportunity to update and improve general education at the University of Arizona is of utmost importance. With support from the university strategic plan, a committee of professors, students, and staff have worked diligently to build a curriculum that anticipates the needs of tomorrow’s students, and allows flexibility for individualized career paths.
The University of Arizona needs exceptional faculty to accomplish our bold goals for research and education. The Eminent Scholars Program, managed by the Office of the Provost and the University of Arizona Foundation, accelerated growth of endowed chairs by amplifying private gifts with additional state and university funds.
