Our Mission

To develop, curate and connect academic resources, programming and structures to support faculty success across the entire career life cycle.

We focus

on providing an unparalleled set of services to academic units and individuals that are guided by principles of transparency, efficiency and inclusive excellence.

We aspire

to create an environment where every faculty member is seen in their whole identity, inundated with positive experiences throughout all stages of their career and has a sense of belonging to their academic communities.

We align

with Ohio State's Shared Values in promoting the understanding of faculty roles and contributions in teaching, scholarship and creative activities, service, extension, clinical work, and patient care, in the context of a land-grant, R1 institution.

By combining recruitment, retention and development strategies, Ohio State builds a talented and diverse workforce to provide a comprehensive and inclusive education that prepares the next generation of leaders and engaged citizens to serve the world.
