Dual Career Assistance Program (Staff Assistance)

Working to reduce the stress and enhance the opportunities for dual career transitions.

The Office of the Provost, in partnership with Human Resources, offers career search assistance to the spouses or partners of newly- hired faculty and senior executive staff. The program seeks to support the University's mission to attract and retain outstanding faculty and staff by recognizing that behind many top candidates stand equally strong spouses or partners who accompany them to the University.

While the program does not guarantee employment, it offers advice, tools and assistance to aid an eligible participant's self-directed career search. Participation is available through referral only (see eligibility).
