Dual Career Program

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to recruiting the most exceptional faculty so that we can continue to excel and innovate.

In order to fulfill this commitment, Illinois Human Resources and the Office of the Provost added the Dual Career Liaison role to our campus in March of 2014. This has allowed us to have great success helping partners of our tenure-track faculty and faculty candidates find employment both on and off campus.
