The Office of the Provost partners with units across campus to sponsor a number of programs designed to help develop leadership among faculty and staff, specifically department chairs.
Faculty and Staff Development
The Office of the Provost provides a variety of professional development programming for faculty and staff, which includes series for assistant professors, mid-career faculty and academic staff, on topics such as mentoring, leadership and inclusion.
Faculty Diversity Initiative
The initiative is designed to encourage department chairs and deans to strengthen faculty diversity including, but not limited to, race and ethnicity, gender and gender expression, disability-related, and social backgrounds and experiences.
The Office of the Provost provides central funding to support a number of compensation tools, which are designed to provide permanent increases in salary for reasons of market, merit, post-tenure review, compression and equity.
The Wisconsin Experience is UW-Madison’s vision for the total student experience, which combines learning in and out of the classroom. It is tied to the Wisconsin Idea and steeped in our long-standing institutional values.
