Upon founding the University of Iowa in 1847, Iowa’s first legislature entrusted it with a threefold mission of teaching, research, and public service. In pursuing that mission today, the university seeks to provide opportunities for faculty to pursue their areas of interest and is committed to supporting excellence, collaboration, and sharing new ideas with the world. We firmly believe that Iowa faculty excel at educating students for success and personal fulfillment in an increasingly diverse and global environment.

The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost has primary responsibility for overseeing faculty and their activities. As one of our most valued resources, our office is committed to helping you realize your dreams and celebrate your successes. Follow your passion! We will do our best to help you achieve it.

In collaboration with collegiate leadership, the office allocates resources, provides faculty development opportunities, and guidance for faculty matters. Our site features many resources to allow you to excel in your role at the University of Iowa. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at faculty@uiowa.edu if we can provide any additional support or assistance.

Thank you for your commitment to excellence.

With best regards,

Lois J. Geist, M.D.
