New Faculty Workshop & Bag Lunch Series

New Faculty Workshop

To assist new faculty in the development of a successful career at UC Davis, Academic Affairs offers a workshop for incoming faculty every fall quarter. This day-long session provides an overview and orientation in key areas of interest to incoming faculty. Topics may include the academic personnel process, dossier evaluation, shared governance, work-life balance and policies, and Faculty Code of Conduct. Whenever possible, the workshop features advice from recently-tenured faculty. The session represents a great opportunity to network with colleagues and gain valuable information about faculty development at UC Davis. A complimentary continental breakfast and catered lunch are provided.
