The Office of the Provost offers workshops and trainings to assist faculty throughout the duration of their career at the University of Oregon. We collaborate with campus partners to offer workshops on topics such as understanding the promotion or tenure process, continued growth and development as an educator, how to produce a strong application for a Williams Instructional Proposal, and more.

Supporting new faculty success
We offer three programs for new faculty, and we encourage faculty at all categories, ranks and stages of their career to participate (career instructional or research faculty, librarians, and tenure-related faculty). The goal is to help you build community and thrive at the UO, regardless of whether you are new to the academy or experienced and just new to UO. You can select one, or participate in all three of these unique programs.
New Faculty Onboarding: This full-day event in late September includes opportunities to meet campus leaders, engage in sessions that support a strong start in scholarship and teaching, and learn some tips for developing a network of mentors. The day is dynamic and ensures new faculty can begin to get to know one another and build their UO network.
UO New Faculty Success Program: This cohort of new faculty commit to meeting monthly during lunch 12:00 p.m. -1:30 p.m. on a Thursday, October-June. New faculty will have the opportunity to get to know one another, while also connecting with current UO faculty. In addition, the UO New Faculty Success Program will engage the NCFDD core curriculum webinar series (how to thrive in the academy) to complement local discussions about best practices for success at the University of Oregon.
September Institute for New Faculty: Sept. 13-15, 2021. New faculty are introduced to UO’s culture of inclusion, teaching, mentorship, research and leadership. This hybrid experience includes in-person interactive experiences from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. each day, supported by asynchronous learning via community.uoregon.edu.
