Accomplishing our academic and research goals requires us to attract and retain outstanding faculty at all levels, in every school, and in each department. Our faculty are at the heart of what we do and achieve at Rensselaer. Through innovative approaches to teaching, learning and research, they inspire, challenge, and lead. Collectively, our faculty create an environment that embraces curiosity, sparks creativity, and invites diverse perspectives, and a culture driven to pursue breakthrough discoveries and advances in the service of humanity.
Within the paradigm of The New Polytechnic, Rensselaer serves as a crossroads where our faculty are empowered to engage in new, multidisciplinary collaborations. These collaborations attract major sources of funding, lead to discoveries that reverberate well beyond the university, and entice the best and brightest students to attend Rensselaer. Just as our alumni and alumnae were drawn to Rensselaer by its world-class faculty and an unparalleled educational experience, so too will our students of tomorrow.
Since our founding, Rensselaer faculty have been instrumental in preparing our students to go out into the world and transform it for the better. To help ensure tomorrow’s graduates achieve no less, we must support building faculty strength and capacity. Help our faculty change the world.
