CHAPTER 10. NJIT FACULTY
This chapter addresses Standard 10 of the Characteristics of Excellence in Higher Education: Faculty.
With superior preparation and career achievements, the excellence of its faculty and instructional staff is crucial to the university's ability to achieve its mission. The faculty and instructional staff of all colleges and schools have developed plans to address the changing needs of education in the 21st century. These plans have been in harmony with past and present strategic plans. The current plan, Building for the Future, will allow retiring faculty and instructional staff to be replaced according to a well-developed, mission-based hiring plan. To increase collaboration among all shareholders of the university, a shared governance model will augment mission-fulfillment.
