    Welcome from Timothy R. Austin

    Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs

    Welcome to Duquesne University!

    As a new faculty member, you are joining a community of distinguished teacher-scholars. These talented women and men commit their time and energy to promoting student learning at all levels. They also make unique contributions to research and scholarship in their respective fields. Above all, they see these two facets of their work as inherently complementary and the interplay between them as one of the great sources of excitement and fulfillment in the profession that we share.

    As the nation's only Spiritan university, Duquesne has built a strong - and ever growing - reputation for promoting the highest standards of excellence in liberal and professional education, for fostering moral and spiritual values in all areas of its work, for creating an ecumenical atmosphere on campus that actively welcomes and celebrates diversity, and for serving others here in Pittsburgh and throughout the world. Today, we look to you to contribute your own gifts to sustain and indeed enhance that reputation.

    To promote your success as an educator throughout your career at the university, Duquesne's Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) offers orientations, workshops, book studies, one-on-one consulting, and online and print resources. Please take some time to become acquainted with CTE by exploring this website.

    I offer my personal best wishes as you embark on the first of what will, I trust, be many rewarding and fulfilling years at Duquesne!
