Attracting Faculty Talent: A Discussion for Department Chairs

Last updated November 2, 2023

How are you responding to the current trends impacting faculty recruitment?


In recent years, you may have noticed that it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to attract faculty talent to your campus. Many institutions are finding that the offer of tenure is not enough. The pandemic made people rethink their priorities. Generational differences are impacting what some people value in their workplace. The social and political climate surrounding your campus also matters—a lot. So if you find that faculty are becoming more selective in where and how they grow their careers, you’re not alone.

Join us online for a one-hour discussion where we will explore the current trends impacting faculty recruitment. The conversation will be responsive to the questions asked by the attendees, but if you’re looking for an opportunity to reflect on how well you’re responding to the changing needs of your incoming faculty, this discussion is for you. Come prepared to engage in dialogue and share insights with other department chairs from across the country.

Who should attend?

This discussion is specifically designed for any/all department chairs or program directors who are looking to better understand what it means to think like a talent manager. If you’re looking for new ways to attract and recruit faculty, this discussion series is for you!

Academic deans, including associate/assistant deans, who are interested in supporting their department chairs in this work, will also benefit from this discussion series.
