Faculty reinvestment

• 70 new faculty positions
   – Majority junior positions
• Increase the pool
   – Monitor the pool and selection process
• Best efforts at partner placement
• Increased efforts to “close the deal”

• 15 new faculty (5 offers outstanding)
   – 3 women (2 more not yet confirmed)

Longer term strategies

• Tracking future faculty
• Building relationships that will increase the pipeline of
  applicants
• Courting existing faculty at other universities
• Improving environment to assure that all individuals
  feel welcome and are supported so that they may
  thrive and reach their full potential
What can you do to help?

• Continue to project the image of Texas A&M as a
  welcoming environment to all individuals
• Work with us on potential “opportunities”
   – Partner Placement
• Financial resources to lure senior faculty
