The Office for Faculty Equity and Welfare

The Office for Faculty Equity & Welfare (OFEW) is committed to the 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, individuals with disabilities, veterans, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender, and others. In general, OFEW can help direct you to a more specialized office as appropriate and give you advice.

The office also provides information and advice on a variety of issues important to faculty welfare through advocacy and workshops. As part of the Office of the Vice Provost for the Faculty, OFEW works closely with the Vice Provost for the Faculty, the Academic Personnel Office, and the Budget Committee.
