Faculty Hiring Investment Program

Public Forum on the Hiring Investment Program

Dear colleagues,

In my letter to the faculty announcing the Hiring Investment Program I expressed my intent to host a public discussion of the program. This will provide an opportunity to answer any questions or concerns those developing proposals, or considering the possibility of so doing, may have.  The forum is now scheduled for Friday, January 24th, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM in the MUII Room. 

I look forward to the opportunity for dialog about the Hiring Investment Program. The questions we have fielded to date suggest that some elements of the program can be explained more clearly. Moreover, as the Hiring Investment Program is designed to inspire unique proposals, I anticipate that there will be some unanticipated questions and issues that will be of value to consider as we prepare for the proposal review process.

I hope that as many as possible of the groups working on proposals will be represented. Those unable to attend in particular should note that I am always interested in hearing your questions, and will respond by email or through postings to the FAQ on the initiative web page at http://provost.ucdavis.edu/initiatives-and-activities/initiatives/HIP.html .
