Faculty Cluster Hires - Sustainability

Dear colleagues:

I'm pleased to announce ten new faculty positions for interdisciplinary "cluster hiring" to advance research, education, and outreach on sustainability, an area of strategic emphasis identified by President Mason.

A University-wide competitive award process resulted in this winning proposal to create a faculty alliance on "water sustainability" in CLAS, Public Health, Law, Engineering, the Graduate College, and the Public Policy Center. The ten new hires will enhance our existing faculty strengths and new campus assets--the $1.3M Iowa Flood Center, the Office of Sustainability, the undergraduate certificate in sustainability--to galvanize an initiative for national excellence in an area of global importance: The quality, remediation, regulation, and health impacts of water. For details, please see the Office of the Provost web site:

Sincerely,

Wallace D. Loh
