September Institute for New Faculty

September 12-14, 2022
10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. each day

Goal: Provide new faculty the opportunity to be in community with one another while being introduced to UO’s culture of inclusion, teaching, mentorship, scholarship, and leadership.


  1. Cultivate connection and community with your UO peers and colleagues
  2. Describe cultural humility as well as the LACE and IDEAL frameworks
  3. Define UO’s teaching pillars: professional, inclusive, engaged and research-informed
  4. Reflect on the principles of culturally responsive mentorship
  5. Identify resources and support for success in research, scholarship or creative work
  6. Uncover your leadership potential and the ethos of inclusive and transformational leadership at UO.


New faculty ­– tenure-related or career faculty at any rank in their first few years at UO – are invited to participate in a hybrid engaging experience. This includes asynchronous learning via our LMS, coupled with in-person interactive discussions and community building. Faculty will build relationships with one another, as well as colleagues from the following units: Office of the Provost, Division of Equity and Inclusion, Teaching Engagement Program, UO Online, and the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation.
