New Faculty are indisputably the future of our university. To better support the 2012/13 new faculty cohort, CET&L, with support from the Faculty Development Council, is launching a pilot New Faculty Institute for pre-tenure faculty new to UC to:
- Enhance new faculty efforts in research, teaching, and service;
- Enable new tenure track faculty to reach these goals with greater efficiency; and
- Improve new faculty retention and deepen knowledge of the RPT process.
The CET&L New Faculty Institute Steering Committee works in partnership with deans and academic unit heads to identify new pre-tenure faculty, as well as identify interdepartmental and external faculty mentors. CET&L then trains faculty mentors to create and sustain effective mentoring relationships and to develop effective and efficient strategies for providing feedback to new faculty.*
