50-in-5 Faculty Members

The 50-in-5 Mission

professor teaching class

Building onto what has undoubtedly been a truly inspiring year for the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science, the college’s “50 in 5” mission is well underway.

Specifically, the college is in the midst of hiring at least 50 tenure track faculty members over the next five years—an initiative that Provost Beverly Davenport has coined “50 in 5.”

“As we have reached record enrollment in the college (more than 5,000), this will significantly enhance our ability to provide the best possible learning experience for our students. It will also bolster our research capacity and substantially improve our national and global reputation,” states CEAS Dean Teik C. Lim, PhD.

CEAS is proactively seeking the finest engineering educators and researchers with an emphasis on female and underrepresented minority candidates. Additionally, the college has begun formulating faculty and staff development plans that will have a very strong component in enhancing interdisciplinary research opportunities and inclusiveness within the college and across its university.

Students researching together

To date, 21 new faculty members have joined CEAS in our mission of excellence. There are 12 more positions that are currently opened and in the hiring process. 

Stay tuned as more distinguished researchers come aboard at CEAS and help us achieve our vision as we demonstrate time and time again that WE ENGINEER BETTER™.
