Work-Life Liaisons

Work-Life Liaisons support the faculty recruitment efforts in each college by meeting individually with candidates to discuss Virginia Tech’s dual career resources, extend-the-tenure-clock policies, modified duties polices, commitment to diversity, community resources, and to refer candidates to appropriate resources for additional information. These meetings are confidential and separate from the formal search process.

The role of the Liaison is designed to meet the unique needs of each college. In some colleges, in addition to meeting with candidates, the Work-Life Liaison may also help shape search processes, and answer questions from search committee members.
