New Faculty Foundations

The New Faculty Foundations Program provides both a community for new faculty in the College of Engineering (CoE) and resources for new faculty success. The program is coordinated by the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the College of Engineering, in cooperation with the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching in Engineering (CRLT-Engin). You may register to attend the New Faculty Foundations Monthly Lunch Gatherings at this link.

2019 Monthly Networking Lunches

Monthly Networking Lunches
Establishing connections with colleagues is an essential element to new faculty success. As a part of the New Faculty Foundations program, engineering faculty will have the opportunity to informally gather with their peers over lunch. There are separate sessions specifically designed for lecturers and tenure track faculty, as well as joint sessions. Participants will respond to a survey to indicate preferred discussion topics for these sessions. Topics may include discovering best practices for teaching and learning, supporting students in distress, mentoring graduate students, preparing your first grant, and preparing for your third year review. All networking lunches will be held on Thursdays from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm in 2210 Lurie Engineering Center.
