Dear colleagues,

Dear colleagues,

Last April the Office of the Provost invited proposals to recruit tenure-track or tenured faculty in two interdisciplinary clusters: "Aging in the Heartland" and "Public Humanities." Two faculty committees, one for each cluster, reviewed the proposals over the summer and in some cases raised questions with the proposing units that ultimately helped to strengthen their plans.

Dear colleagues:

I'm pleased to announce ten new faculty positions for interdisciplinary "cluster hiring" to advance research, education, and outreach on sustainability, an area of strategic emphasis identified by President Mason.
