The Office of Academic Affairs completed the first edition of the UW Bothell New Faculty Handbook in June. This resource is available both electronically and in-print, and will be used to help new faculty members transition to the UW Bothell community. The Handbook will be updated annually each Spring Quarter, and feedback is always welcome.
The New Faculty Handbook is available in PDF form here.

To serve our growing campus community and support the development of new and innovative programs, UW Bothell recently conducted national searches for 23 new faculty positions.
Search committees used multiple strategies to ensure nation-wide visibility and develop strong candidate pools reflecting our campus commitment to diversity. Strategies included an advertising contract with Inside Higher Ed, an online source for national higher education recruitment and news. In addition, we contracted with the Minority Faculty Applicant Database to provide monthly notifications of our faculty positions to its minority faculty registrants and partner institutions. These efforts contributed to outstanding applicant pools and nearly 60 candidate visits over the past year.
As a result of these successful searches, we look forward to welcoming the following new faculty members in Autumn 2010:
