Welcome new S&T faculty! This page contains resources for new and early career faculty. We define "new and early career" faculty as pre-promotion and pre-tenure faculty who have been on campus for 1-5 years (typically before your first promotion).
Both tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty are welcome to attend all new and early career faculty events.
A Canvas course called S&T New Faculty Resources is also set up with a variety of resources. If you need access, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Early career faculty searching for professional development travel funds should visit the ECFF Development Grants page.
Here is a checklist for New Faculty with links to resources to help you get acclimated to campus during your first year:
All faculty are encouraged to provide students with a course syllabus to emphasize the expectations that students must meet in order to be successful in the courses they are taking (expected learning outcomes, evaluation criteria, etc). For resources in constructing a syllabus that communicates clear expectations. See the archived resources below under "Setting Clear Expectations for Your Class."
In addition to the important information that is typically included in a course syllabus, all faculty are encouraged to include information provided by the Vice Provost of Academic Support linked here.
Review the "Preparing for Your Annual and Third-Year Review" FAQ Panel
myVita is the campus resource for documenting all of your achievements in teaching, research, and service. You'll use this system to prepare your dossiers for promotion and tenure. Find out more from the myVita Library resource and Scholars' Mine. To access past ECFF resources, visit our archive.
