In March, Dr. Tyrone Forman, Associate Chancellor and Vice Provost for Diversity, announced that he would return to faculty to pursue his program of research on the nature and social consequences of intergroup prejudice and discrimination. We are thankful for all of his hard work during his tenure and proud of what has been accomplished under his leadership in making UIC a place where diversity flourishes and students, staff and faculty feel welcome and can openly express their identities.
We are now undertaking a national search for the new Associate Chancellor and Vice Provost for Diversity. The search committee will be co-chaired by Teresa Córdova, Ph.D., Director of Great Cities Institute and Professor in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs (CUPPA), and Jane Rhodes, Ph.D., Department Head, and Professor of African American Studies. As a valued member of our university community, we encourage you to share this opportunity broadly and help us attract the best possible pool of applicants for this exciting opportunity. For nominations, please send the candidate’s name and contact information to Teresa Córdova at email@example.com or to Jane Rhodes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For fullest consideration, candidates should apply and submit a letter of interest and resume by September 5, 2017. The position description can be found at http://adminsearches.uic.edu/acvpd/.
