Searches in the departments of Biology, Communication, Economics, Exercise and Sport Science, Psychology & Neuroscience, and Sociology will contribute to this initiative. Across these searches, we aspire to recruit faculty who are doing innovative, intersectional, and high impact work that will diversify and enhance our research, teaching, and public outreach missions.
