New Faculty Institute

Every year, the Faculty Center hosts the new cohort of faculty at the New Faculty Institute. The New Faculty Institute (NFI) consists of two kinds of activities. First, there is an orientation provided at the beginning of the fall semester, which is especially designed to help new faculty to be successful in their first semester as a lecturer or tenure-track faculty member. The institute also consists of a number of workshops that occur throughout the year, and will reconvene for two half-day retreats later in the academic year, with additional information and timely guidance. Workshop topics include teaching, research, networking, and campus resources. Sessions are held on Fridays and include lively discussions, panels, and even field trips! Most Fridays will include refreshments as well as an opportunity to interact with colleagues. Note: NFI will be held the second Friday of every month from 1:30-3:00p.m.
