Faculty work is as much a way of living as it is a career choice. At the University of Virginia, the programs, research, and initiatives of the Vice Provost for Faculty Recruitment & Retention (VPFRR) reflect this view.

The VPFRR has responsibility for a broad range of faculty related initiatives, projects, and research:

  • faculty diversity
  • recruitment and retention
  • dual careers
  • promotion and tenure

The passion for scholarship, teaching, and service to others is often difficult to reconcile with the practical realities of academic and personal life. The VPFRR partners with the university's schools, centers, and programs to support all faculty members so that they can excel as scholars, teachers and human beings.

This office is committed in all its programs and activities to creating a welcoming and supportive climate for faculty from diverse perspectives and backgrounds.
