The Campus-Wide New Faculty Orientation, sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT), is designed to help new faculty members prepare for their first year at the University of Michigan. It provides new faculty an overview of what it's like to work at the university by learning from the U-M leaders, participating in a teaching workshop offered by CRLT, connect with some of the organizations around campus, and engaging in intellectual and inspiring conversations with their colleagues.
