New faculty members welcomed, introduced with brief profiles
Incoming professors at the West Lafayette campus took part Aug. 19 in a New Faculty Orientation hosted by the Office of the Provost. They received a welcome from Jay Akridge, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs and diversity, and heard presentations on a variety of subjects such as equity, diversity and inclusion; tenure and promotion; Purdue students; campus climate; research and partnerships; and engagement. They also attended an information fair.
Brief profiles of many of these new faculty members, by way of welcome and introduction, are presented by the Office of the Provost and Purdue Today in a downloadable Microsoft Word document. The Office of the Provost invited incoming faculty members to provide this information. The 112 responses are arranged by college/school.
