Welcome to the Office of Faculty Affairs

The goal of the Office of Faculty Affairs (OFA) is to support the success of faculty through the various ages and stages of their careers—to onboard effectively; to develop a path for career success; to advance in academic rank; to gain skills and competencies for a new leadership position; to plan for a smooth transition to retirement. The OFA is here to advise, mentor, advocate for, and guide the UMass Chan faculty of today and tomorrow.
