The Office of Faculty Development & Diversity (OFDD) provides a range of resources, including training and support for deans, department chairs and individual faculty members, in the areas of faculty development and diversity. OFDD works with deans, chairs and search committees to improve recruitment and retention practices and to increase diversity in faculty hiring. The office provides guidance to the academic leadership and to individual faculty members on mentoring and the tenure and promotion processes. OFDD also offers professional development programming and grants opportunities for faculty. The office actively collaborates with the Division of Human Resources, the Dean of the Faculty, and other offices on campus in its efforts to support the success and wellbeing of all faculty members.

The office is led by John Siliciano, Deputy Provost, and Yael Levitte, Associate Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity.
