Is there a hiring freeze?

Answer: 

There is a hiring freeze and salary freeze through June 30, 2021 for faculty and staff only. ┬áThere is no freeze on hires, reappointments, or raises for postdocs and postgrads. The one exception is for positions that are funded by endowments and certain other central resources. These positions must first be reviewed by the provost’s office before a hire or reappointment may be approved. ┬áBecause most postdocs and postgrads are paid from grants and research accounts, the number of positions that will require provostial review will be small.
