Faculty Training & Support

In concert with the Office of the Provost, the Library, and the Institute Diversity Officer, the Office of Faculty Affairs provides a variety of training and support opportunities for regular, technical and special faculty members. These opportunities are aimed at onboarding new faculty members, providing ongoing support for continuing faculty development, fostering a sense of community, and supporting the Institute’s goals for equity, diversity, and inclusion.
