Monthly Lunch Meetings

The 2019-2020 cohort of new faculty will meet regularly throughout the year for ongoing support and meetings with key partners from across campus. These meetings will be held during the Common Hour (12:30-1:45) and will rotate in various locations around campus to encourage exploration of new-to-you spaces. Please bring your own lunch.

New Faculty Intercession

This intensive week will complement the abbreviated orientation in August targeted simply at getting you ready for your first semester of classes. This series of activities will more broadly address your teaching, scholarship, and service roles.

Details will be posted in the fall.  In the meantime, save the week of January 6 - 10, 2020, for these activities.

Faculty Mentoring Program

We tailor the structure of the mentoring program to the size and makeup of each cohort. See this page for more information.


New Faculty Orientation

This orientation is specifically designed to welcome you and get you ready for your first semester of classes. The dates and times for the 2019 New Faculty Orientation are below.  Details will be sent to participants via email later in the summer. See detailed agenda here.

Beyond this specific or 'just-in-time' fall orientation, monthly meetings throughout the year will serve as a broader orientation and introduction to the wider campus.  (See next tab for details.)
