For our new CU Boulder tenure track and instructor track faculty members, the Office of Faculty Affairs sponsors a day-long New Faculty Orientation. This event takes place annually in the Fall semester, prior to the first week of class. As a new CU Boulder faculty member, you are joining a community of scholars and artists aiming to enhance the public good through their teaching, research, and service. New Faculty Orientation will provide important information, assistance, and advice to get you started at CU Boulder.

Note: New Faculty Orientation 2024 will be held on Monday, August 19, 2024.
