Carnegie Mellon University


Welcome to the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty. 

In partnership with colleagues across the university, the VPF helps to develop policies and practices that attract and retain diverse, world-class scholars in all of Carnegie Mellon's fields and disciplines. The current Vice Provost for Faculty is Kathryn Roeder, who was appointed in June 2015 by Provost Farnam Jahanian.

Over time, this website will become a central repository for guidance on issues that directly affect CMU faculty, hosting resources that might be useful throughout every stage of a faculty member’s life, including orientation, leaves of absence, tenure and promotion, and retirement. We are committed to assisting CMU faculty throughout their careers and we encourage you to bring your questions and concerns to the attention of this office via our Contact Us page.
