Steve Marcus becomes University of Maryland's Director of Faculty Leadership

Juan Uriagereka, the University of Maryland’s associate provost for faculty affairs, has announced that Professor Steve Marcus (ECE/ISR) is assuming a newly defined part-time position as the University of Maryland’s first director of faculty leadership within the Office of Faculty Affairs.

Marcus is a former director of ISR and a former chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.

The overall goal of the position is to work with other offices on campus to create a stronger sense of community and quality of life for faculty, a supportive environment in which everyone can excel. Marcus sees two major components to this goal: stronger and more effective faculty mentoring and leadership development and support for chairs and directors.

"I envision ongoing programs to support mentors, junior faculty, chairs and directors, as well as communities for mentors and junior faculty, and for chairs and directors across the campus," Marcus says.

Long-term, Uriagereka would like the director of faculty leadership to be filled on a rotating basis by members of the faculty, "so as to strengthen the partnership between this office and its constituencies.”
