“The proposals we received were thoughtful, innovative, and articulated alignment with our focus on the intellectual growth of the institution and the importance of amplifying a supportive foundation for all faculty to thrive,” Woodruff-Borden said. “The final IHP includes new tenure-track faulty positions tied to several areas of institutional strategic focus: three in areas that bolster our work in sport and wellness, ten tied to adding to the UO’s strength in the environment, and an exciting cluster of five hires focusing on areas of Latin scholarship.”
