A Message from Provost Ann E. Cudd

Dear Colleagues:

The strength of the University of Pittsburgh rises from its faculty members. The exceptional work you do—from research to mentoring to outstanding instruction and so much more—energizes and transforms not only every Pitt campus but our region and our world. 

This handbook shares policies that may directly impact your work as a faculty member here at Pitt. It is designed to guide and support your efforts.

As you review its contents, please remember that your voice in the shared governance process is both important and deeply valued. 

Please contact faculty@pitt.edu in the Office of the Provost with any questions or concerns about this handbook. 

Thank you for all you do—and Hail to Pitt!

Ann E. Cudd
Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor
