Provost's Commitment to Dual Career Couples
Cognizant of the challenge faculty partners face in finding suitable employment when they relocate to the Chicago area, the Office of the Provost invests significant resources in assisting in these situations.
- The University of Chicago is a founding sponsor of the Greater Chicago Midwest Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (GCM HERC), a network of regional academic and research institutions sharing information on job opportunities.
- Dual Career Services aids the partners of recently-appointed faculty in preparing for their job search and identifying employment opportunities inside and outside of academia.
- The Provost reserves significant resources to assist partners seeking employment within the University. Decisions on the allocation of these resources are made in consultation with the deans and chairs of the academic units involved and in accord with appropriate search processes.
