First-Year Experience for 教师

哥伦比亚大学 is excited to welcome new faculty to campus. We've specifically designed a year of support that:

  • Provides orientation to the life of a faculty member at 哥伦比亚大学
  • Supports your teaching and 奖学金 with professional development
  • Creates a community of support for future teaching, 奖学金, 服务, and leadership at 哥伦比亚大学


First-Year 教师 Lunches with the 教务长 

Monthly gatherings of all first-year faculty take place for a time of sharing about faculty experiences. Invited guests may also participate to discuss topics of interest and explore opportunities taking place on campus. Lunch is provided by the 教务长's office. 

: 12:30- 1:20 p.m. (Common Hour) on select Thursdays throughout the semester.


教师 will become members of small mentor learning groups to share experiences and provide support across the first year (and beyond). Each community is expected to meet as a group at least twice a semester, and guidance from 教师 Development will be provided to include observation and discussion resources. Each member is to partner with another to complete peer observations. 

: Twice a semester on select dates throughout the semester. 


15-minute brown bag lunch virtual chats will provide information on topics to support new faculty at 哥伦比亚大学. These will be recorded and shared with new faculty unable to attend. 主题包括:
