The responsibilities of the Associate Provost for Academic Personnel range from oversight of a number of important units whose functions have direct impact on multiple dimensions of Faculty Life (i.e. Faculty Contracts Office, CARS, and Dispute Resolution), to responding to individual faculty and administrative personnel requests for assistance of all sorts (hiring, leaves, policy interpretations, etc.). The goal of this office is quite simply to improve faculty experiences at UNM, and to reinforce and initiate new activities that strengthen the work of existing faculty and ensure that we are recruiting the best possible candidates in future hiring initiatives. The major task of this office is to build faculty strength. Listed below are both past, ongoing and new efforts that suit our major goals and fit within the Regents’ mandates.
