New Faculty Orientation (NFO) is a two-day event facilitated by Faculty & Academic Affairs and the Center for Educational Innovation for all new tenure-track, tenured, and term faculty members. This orientation is held annually on Monday and Tuesday in late-August and provides interaction and information on teaching, research/creative activity, and life at the University of Minnesota. Among the events throughout the program, new faculty will have the opportunity to meet senior leaders, attend teaching workshops, and network with their colleagues. The next orientation will be held on Monday, August 31, and Tuesday, September 1, 2020; details are forthcoming. Information from last year's program can be found below.
New faculty will receive an email invitation to NFO in July when registration opens. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org at any point during the year to ensure that a faculty member's name is on our invitation list.
In addition to New Faculty Orientation, our office hosts the New Faculty Program which offers sessions throughout the calendar year. New faculty are welcome to participate in this program prior to attending NFO.
