The purpose of the New Faculty Academy is to engage new faculty in meaningful professional development and networking activities during their first year at the University of North Florida. Through these activities, we hope to build a community of faculty who support and encourage each other in their professional growth. Participation in the New Faculty Academy will provide you with opportunities to attend workshops and events intended to strengthen your pedagogical knowledge and skills and advance your scholarly agenda. Further, the New Faculty Academy will provide documentation of your professional development efforts that can be used in annual evaluations and promotion dossiers.
Upon successful completion of the Academy requirements, participants will receive:
All faculty who have joined UNF in the past two (2) years (since August of 2021), of any rank (adjuncts, lecturers/instructors, library faculty, visiting faculty, and tenure line faculty) are eligible.
