New Faculty Orientation

Each August, Faculty Affairs hosts New Faculty Orientation (NFO) and the Center for Teaching and Learning hosts a Fall Teaching Kickoff event. (See below for the 2017 dates for NFO events.)

For more information about Teaching Kickoff (a series of interactive workshops aimed at getting faculty members geared up and ready for the first day of class), click here. Additional details about the 2017 events are forthcoming.

Please note that participants need to register for Fall Teaching Kickoff and the Using Clickers training separately from New Faculty Orientation registration. Click here to RSVP to New Faculty Orientation and/or the President's Dinner.
