Faculty Affairs

Dear faculty colleagues,

A vital, energized faculty body is central to the success of the College’s mission, vision and core values. You are the intellectual engine at the heart of VCU: You engage VCU students in classroom learning, research and community outreach. Your well-being is vital to the College and to VCU. Faculty Affairs in the College of Humanities and Sciences is critical for faculty development, retention, promotion and ultimately, success at VCU.

In the Faculty Affairs section of the website, you will find links to information about committees, awards, and promotion¬†and tenure as well as in-depth profiles of faculty colleagues. You are also invited to contact us if you have ideas about how Faculty Affairs and VCU’s College of Humanities and Sciences can achieve the goals laid out in our strategic plan.
