New Faculty Program


The New Faculty Program (NFP) offers multiple opportunities for tenure track and contract faculty to jumpstart their careers at the U. The program helps faculty build their capacities in research, teaching, community engagement, career advancement, and leadership.

NFP aims to build competence, community, and curiosity in the professional lives of faculty. For example, faculty will participate in workshops and seminars to expand their knowledge and skills in their multiple responsibilities at the U. Second, faculty will build connections with members of their cohort and the wider University community. Finally, we expect that NFP experiences will be a catalyst for expanding the intellectual curiosity that is characteristic of high achieving faculty.

New faculty who participate in the program are eligible to receive a letter of completion from the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs. We will also notify your dean and department leadership of your participation in the program.

Registration and Schedule

Registration for NFP and a schedule for Fall 2017 will be available in late August. Check back over the coming weeks for updates.
