Miller School’s Dr. Tatiana Perrino Appointed as University of Miami’s Associate Provost for Faculty Development

Tatiana Perrino, Psy.D., professor in the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Department of Public Health Sciences, has been appointed as the Associate Provost for Faculty Development at the University of Miami.

“Dr. Perrino will develop, lead, and oversee faculty development programming for the Office of Faculty Affairs,” said University of Miami’s Guillermo (Willy) Prado, Ph.D., vice provost for Faculty Affairs, dean of the University of Miami Graduate School, and professor of Nursing and Health Studies, Public Health Sciences, and Psychology. “The University is fortunate to have such an extraordinary scholar and educator in this important role.”

In this new position, Dr. Perrino will be responsible for supporting faculty development at the University of Miami’s 11 schools and colleges, as well as other important units, such as the University’s libraries.

“I am excited about the university’s commitment to nurturing our development as faculty members,” said Dr. Perrino. “There are so many possibilities. I very much look forward to this collaborative work and to serving UM faculty.”

Dr. Perrino noted that UM faculty differ in many ways that affect professional development priorities, including disciplines, roles, and aspirations, as well as the support that is available at individual colleges and schools.

“Our team has started by assessing faculty needs and mapping existing resources,” said Dr. Perrino. “It has been wonderful to listen to faculty champions across all campuses.” 

Together with Dr. Prado, Osamudia James, J.D., L.L.M., professor of law, dean's distinguished scholar and associate dean for Diversity, Equity, and Community, as well as with the faculty affairs team, Dr. Perrino will be using faculty feedback to enrich and guide faculty development initiatives. Among others, these may address career advancement, scholarly productivity, teaching and mentoring, leadership and administration, team building and collaborations, work-life balance, and community-building and service.

“Faculty input will help steer the initiatives,” said Dr. Perrino.
