Junior Faculty Program
The Junior Faculty Program provides support for junior faculty right from their successful recruitment to the college faculty body until they become established members of our community. Supporting activities include:
- An annual new faculty orientation each fall. The goal of the orientation is to provide new faculty with college-specific information on starting in research, teaching, leading a group or managing a lab in the College of Engineering.
- A first-year extended mentoring network for each new faculty member.
- Several full-day annual development workshops for new faculty on charting a successful future. Topics include: (i) Research grant writing; (ii) Building your professional network; (iii) Managing yourself and others; (iv) Negotiation skills.
