New Faculty at TU

Tulsa, OK – University of Tulsa to hire 20 new faculty

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Tough economic times won't keep the University of Tulsa from hiring about 20 full-time faculty members next fall.

Provost Roger Blais calls the hiring normal turnover for the university's staff of approximately 320 faculty members.

Blais says the university benefited from a deep pool of highly qualified applicants because many other schools are either cutting jobs or have a hiring freeze in place.

Fifteen hirings have already been completed, and Blais says other offers remain on the table.
