The IMSA C.A.D.R.E. program, a performance-based recruitment, selection, retention and professional development system for faculty, is designed to fulfill three major objectives:
- to recruit and select the most talented faculty available from across the nation,
- to recognize the outstanding performance and sustained commitment and contribution of faculty to the IMSA community, and
- to facilitate the professional and personal growth and development of exemplary faculty.
It is based on the framework of a rigorous recruitment and selection process that effectively recommends the employment of outstanding faculty.
