Welcome to our New Faculty Orientation!

The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (The Centre) through the office of the Vice-Provost (Academic Affairs) is hosting the New Faculty Orientation which will be held on July 10th and 11th, 2018. It is very important for all new faculty members to attend this event, to meet new colleagues, and to learn more about the University and the supports and resources that are available to you. The theme for our two-day orientation is, “Igniting Your Journey.” It will consist of sessions on topics related to Indigenous engagement, teaching, research and service; a panel discussion on equity, diversity and inclusion; and a keynote speaker who will present his views on what you need to know as a new faculty member.

Our main goal for the orientation is to acquaint you with the resources that will support you throughout your first 5 years at the University of Manitoba. We guarantee you two exciting days filled with opportunities for networking.
