The Ohio State University recognizes the importance of dual career hiring in recruiting and retaining exceptional faculty and has policies in place to support partner hiring. This is particularly important for women in the STEM fields, where studies show dual career needs are more prevalent. Colleges and units should contact a Talent Acquisition Consultant to discuss available support services.

As part of its commitment to the recruitment and retention of a diverse and world-class faculty, the Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) has established a hiring fund to help support dual career academic appointments.
