It is my privilege to welcome you to UMBC’s Faculty Affairs webpage. The Office of Faculty Affairs is committed to supporting the careers of our faculty colleagues, who are dedicated to inclusive research, teaching, and service activities that advance the mission and vision of UMBC. As Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs I am responsible for facilitating the recruitment, development and retention of faculty members and to increase the diversity of our faculty. I hope you will find the materials on the website a helpful resource to assist you successfully navigating your career at UMBC. Please contact me, or a member of my staff, if you have questions about UMBC’s Office of Faculty Affairs.
