The Center for Faculty Advancement (CFA) is committed to faculty success and provides research and practice support in form mentoring during the faculty lifecycle beginning with New Faculty Orientation (NFO). During NFO, faculty may become members of a mentoring institute that fosters the advancement, promotion, and retention of all faculty across NYU departments and schools.

New Faculty Orientation

The New Faculty Orientation is an opportunity to learn about NYU’s academic and professional resources, network with new colleagues and peers, and become familiar with the programs, services and policies that shape teaching, research, and scholarship at NYU. This orientation is an important first step in becoming familiarized with NYU and provides new faculty with key resources to acclimate into their new position. All new faculty members are encouraged to attend and gain important strategies for success at NYU.

About New Faculty Orientation

New Faculty Orientation is a one-day event held on September 10, 2020. Combining staff from the Provost’s Office and the Center for Faculty Advancement, NYU has designed the day to provide our new faculty with a broad overview of resources, both scholastic and logistic, to set faculty on the path to success.

Our partners and colleagues in the Office of Research, Teaching and Learning with Technology, NYU Division of Libraries, the Office of Global Inclusion and Diversity, the Office of Sustainability, and the Office of Work-Life are involved in developing the thriving teaching and research environment and faculty wellness. Together, with the Center for Faculty Advancement, new faculty will learn about resources available for a smooth and successful transition to NYU. The day includes break-out sessions and more.
