New Faculty Orientation

New Faculty Development Workshops

The Executive Vice Chancellor’s Office offers a series of New Faculty Development Workshops throughout the academic year to enable a deeper dive on topics of importance to new faculty. While primarily targeted toward first-year faculty, invitations to these workshops are also extended to those in their second and third years. Attend at least five workshops (tenure-track faculty, research faculty, and faculty of practice) or four workshops (lecturers) over the course of your first three years on different topics and receive a certificate of completion.

Information about the 2023-24 workshop series will be forthcoming.
