New Faculty Workshop

To assist new academic senate 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.

Please note that if you are a School of Medicine new faculty in the Clinical X and Clinical Professor series, our feedback from previous attendees indicates that the information provided at the new faculty workshop on the Davis campus was not as helpful to the new faculty in these series, as was that presented at the School of Medicine new faculty workshop. The next School of Medicine new faculty workshop is scheduled for April 6, 2016 and more information may be found at this link:
