Faculty Recruitment

Faculty recruitment is incredibly important to advancing Washburn’s mission and core values and to serving our students far into the future. The faculty we hire today are likely to be the people responsible for creating our student learning experiences for the next twenty-five to forty years. Thus, it is imperative Washburn recruit and retain outstanding faculty members who are committed to teaching excellence.
