Faculty Development & Events

Based on the current uncertainties related to COVID-19 the 2020 UB Academy for Higher Education Leadership Summit scheduled for August 9 - 11 has been cancelled. We look forward to the 2021 UB Academy for Higher Education.
To help smooth the transition to UB, and to acquaint new faculty with our leadership and academic, research, and teaching support services and resources, the office of Faculty Affairs presents a New Faculty Orientation program each year. 
The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs continues its workshop series to help department chairs more effectively lead and respond to challenges they confront in their departments and/or units.   We look forward to another year of robust and engaging conversations about departmental life at UB.
In collaboration with the University Libraries and the Center for Educational Innovation, The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs designed a focused, two-track curriculum for a select cohort of 20-30 recently-hired faculty to enter into a New Faculty Academy for Teaching and Scholarly Writing. Each track for a group of 10-15 is offered over four months in the fall semester, and is repeated in the spring semester, so that all participants can attend both over the course of one academic year.
