Faculty Development & Events

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.

The 2020 UB Academy for Higher Education Leadership Summit, August 9 - 11 will be held at the beautiful Holiday Valley Resort and Conference Center in Ellicottville New York.

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.

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.
