New Faculty Brown Bag Series

In an effort to assist new faculty members in the development of a successful career at UB, the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs is instituting a series of Brown Bag luncheons. These luncheons are designed to help newly appointed faculty navigate the many challenges of academic life.

Brown Bag.

These Brown Bag luncheons will provide opportunities for new faculty to explore topics that were introduced during the New Faculty Orientation as well as respond to questions and concerns that have emerged during their transition into faculty life at UB.   These luncheons will bring in a variety of speakers including Vice Provosts, other campus leaders and administrators, recently tenured faculty, as well as relevant professional staff to engage in discussions regarding the multi-faceted issues associated with academic life.

I would like to personally invite new faculty to attend any or all of the sessions outlined below and I look forward to meeting each of you. Please contact our office at 645-3594 or email Patti Napoli (pnapoli@buffalo.edufor your reservation.
