Faculty Liaisons

What is the Liaisons Program?

The purpose of the program is to provide a support and information network for faculty outside of their department and college units. Requests for this type of program were voiced by all three faculty COACHE work groups. Faculty liaisons are asked to:

  1. discuss issues related to career or climate with faculty,
  2. help faculty in finding resources to address issues they encounter,
  3. support faculty as they work through the Purdue system on issues, and
  4. communicate with the Provost's office to identify and address issues related to career and climate proactively.

Who are the liaisons?

  • Dr. Natasha Duncan, Clinical Associate Professor in the Honors College
  • Dr. Angelica Duran, Professor in English, Comparative Literature, and Religious Studies
  • Dr. Jay McCann, Professor in Political Science
  • Dr. Hong Z. Tan, Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering

How can I get help?

Faculty are encouraged to reach out to the faculty liaisons via a dedicated email address: facultyliaisons@purdue.edu.

To request working with a specific liaison, please include that information in the email message. One of the liaisons will follow up directly.

In preparing for a discussion with a liaison, faculty are encouraged to focus on the question 'What do I need?'. The faculty member will then work with a liaison on finding resources to address the question 'How can I get my needs met?'
