First Year Fridays

New Faculty Orientation photo

From the moment new colleagues arrive on our campus and throughout their entire careers, UNH faculty can expect high-quality faculty development opportunities.

First Year Fridays is a series of workshops designed to give first year faculty access to expert resources that support their work with students and career success at UNH. First year faculty are encouraged to participate to network and learn about the UNH community. Join us Fridays 12-1:00 pm.

Delivering high-impact research, transformative community engagement, and a world-class student experience depends on a passionate and productive faculty. That's why the University of New Hampshire provides a fertile environment for faculty success.

The Office of  Engagement and Faculty Development is one of the primary offices providing innovative programs designed to enhance the scholarship, engagement, leadership, and career success of faculty and academic leaders.

It's the UNH faculty advantage.
