The provost's office supports the recruitment and hiring of outstanding faculty members and senior administrators.
Work-Life Liaisons (formerly know as College Liaisons) support faculty recruitment efforts in each college by meeting individually with candidates to discuss Virginia Tech’s dual career resources, extend-the-tenure-clock policy, modified duties policy, commitment to diversity, community resources, and to refer candidates to appropriate resources for additional information. The role of the Liaison is designed to meet the unique needs of each college.
Virginia Tech recognizes that meeting the needs of today’s professional couples is a key factor in recruiting and retaining new faculty. Many prospective candidates for faculty positions at Virginia Tech have spouses or partners who are also seeking employment. The Dual Career Program brings a new level of support to couples and their families when considering employment opportunities with the university and in the surrounding community.
The Recruitment Matching Grant program provides support for creative and innovative recruitment activities to attract early- to mid-career professionals to Virginia Tech outside the usual search process. Proposals are accepted throughout the year.
