On Wednesday, August 27, CRLT will join President Schlissel and Provost Pollack in welcoming hundreds of new faculty members to the University of Michigan. Every year, we run a program that orients new faculty to U-M, helping them prepare for their many and varied roles--as teachers, researchers, mentors and colleagues, and even community members. 

The day's events include:

  • Welcoming addresses from the President and Provost
  • A performance by the CRLT Players sparking conversation about Michigan's diverse students and the faculty's many roles and responsibilities 
  • Faculty panelists sharing insights from their experiences about "What It's Like to Work at Michigan"
  • Workshops and presentations on teaching strategies across a broad range of disciplines and settings
  • An information fair where new faculty can learn about offices and organizations around U-M and beyond.

The program takes place at the Michigan League, and new faculty from all U-M campuses are invited. Find more information, including a full agenda, here.
