The Williams Council seeks candidates who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to undergraduate education. There will be up to two awards. Each recipient will receive a $5,000 award, and the recipient's department will receive another $5,000, supervised by the recipient, to affect tangibly the teaching and learning experience of undergraduates in the department.
February 16, 2017 - The University of Oregon is committed to diversity and inclusion and providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment in which all students, staff and faculty may contribute and thrive. Hostile, intimidating, or abusive behavior damages the strong sense of community valued at UO. Please join us in working to ensure that each member of our community benefits from a respectful and inclusive working and learning environment.

We are writing to inform you of the last and final policy that the UO/UA collective bargaining agreement requires: professional development.

During winter term the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs (OPAA) will be focusing on reviewing and approving TTF professional responsibilities policies, TTF review and promotion policies, and completing the review of NTTF review and promotion policies.
Some units are finalizing some of their policies, but the majority of the CBA-required policies, with the exception of professional development, have been submitted and approved.
This message is to remind you of a number of academic policies that may affect your course planning, grading, and exam schedules.
To support preparation of digital dossiers, fillable PDF portfolios for TTF and NTTF dossiers are available for the 2017 promotion cycle. We have also created a PDF portfolio for the supplementary file; this file may be used for both TTF and NTTF cases. The digital files are available on the Academic Affairs website, along with details on the preparation of TTF and NTTF dossiers, general timelines, and a guidance document on how to construct the file using Adobe Acrobat Pro.
Last week we emailed you about an important new workshop series for unit heads. We hope you will take advantage of these workshops, and provide us with feedback as we work to develop meaningful training opportunities. In addition to workshops for unit heads, the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs will be offering the following opportunities for faculty.
