Faculty are an integral part of our approach to academic success for entering students, and we have developed many ways for IUPUI faculty to bring their energy and talents to our initiatives. The University College bylaws specify that 60% of University College faculty members should be from the tenure-track ranks with the remainder of the faculty being composed of lecturers, senior lecturers, and clinical faculty who are engaged in undergraduate education or in the provision of student support services.
University College associates include colleagues who do not hold faculty appointments, but whose work is closely aligned with the mission of University College.
A number of lecturers are jointly appointed with academic departments, including biology, English, communication studies, education, and mathematics. These faculty teach key first-year courses in their respective fields and University College first-year seminars.
