Welcome to the Office for Faculty Equity & Welfare Website!

The Office for Faculty Equity & Welfare is committed to full participation in academic careers for all scholars, including individuals who are members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education such as women, ethnic minorities, religious minorities, differently-abled, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender and others. The office accomplishes this through promoting inclusive hiring practices, developing supportive academic personnel policies, conducting cutting-edge research on faculty equity, monitoring faculty advancement, advising faculty about tenure and advancement, and promoting faculty retention by building a vibrant and diverse academic community. The Office for Faculty Equity & Welfare provides information and advice on a variety of issues important to faculty welfare through advocacy and workshops on topics such as mentoring, parenting, tenure, and grantwriting.

The Office for Faculty Equity & Welfare provides information, advice and conflict resolution around a variety of issues important to faculty welfare, in consultation with the Vice Provost for the Faculty. The Office for Faculty Equity & Welfare also works closely with the Office of Academic Personnel (appointment and advancement), the Campus Climate and Compliance Office (sexual harassment, sex or race discrimination), the Office of Academic Compliance and Disability Standards (disability accommodation), and the UC Berkeley Family Friendly Edge (childcare and family needs). In addition to the Office for Faculty Equity & Welfare, the Academic Senate offers resources to assist faculty in the resolution of conflicts on campus.
