In collaboration with the University Libraries and the Office of Curriculum, Assessment and Teaching Transformation (CATT), the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs designed a focused, two-track curriculum for a select cohort of 15-25 recently-hired faculty to enter into a New Faculty Academy for Teaching and Scholarly Writing.
The 2023-24 New Faculty Academy (NFA) starts with a kick-off meeting for both fall and spring semester tracks on September 15, at which the framework, expectations, and outcomes for the NFA will be discussed. All newly hired faculty in junior ranks, both on tenure-track as well as non-tenure track, have been invited to attend. Registration is required to join the event and receive further information about the respective tracks.
In collaboration with the Office of Faculty Affairs, the fall track of the New Faculty Academy will be presented by the Teaching Transformation Team, a division of the Office of Curriculum, Assessment, and Teaching Transformation (UB CATT) housed within Academic Affairs.
Scholarship, Writing and Publishing is a one-semester series dedicated to helping new faculty at the University at Buffalo navigate aspects of research and writing, which are central components of scholarly success. In the series, we will review processes of publishing and impact as they relate to an author’s own research and contributions to scholarly conversations in advancing their disciplinary fields. Additionally, we will discuss grant-writing processes and special concerns related to writing grant proposals and complying with grant requirements. Finally, we will identify campus support, including IRB and data management support.
This spring semester series will again be led by librarians Jonathan Grunert and Natalia Estrada, members of the University Libraries’ Scholarly Communications Team, who have experience in research collaborations and processes, interdisciplinary practices, and helping faculty at all stages of the research process.
To mark the successful conclusion of the New Faculty Academy’s fifth iteration in 2023 and share how the participating faculty applied the academy content to their specific scholarly writing or teaching endeavors, the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs in partnership with the University Libraries and the Office of Curriculum, Assessment and Teaching Transformation (CATT) invited faculty and staff to a celebration of the freshly minted New Faculty Fellows and a showcase of their innovative projects in the areas of teaching, scholarship and writing.
