New Faculty Orientation

Each fall the McGraw Center hosts an orientation session for new junior faculty. During this time new faculty have an opportunity to meet other new faculty, hear suggestions from faculty colleagues on enjoying and excelling at Princeton, including advice on writing grants and getting published, and talk about teaching at Princeton. Staff from the Office of the Dean of the Faculty provide information on the many benefits available to Princeton faculty. Past attendees tell us how much they appreciate this chance not only to find out more about the workings of the University but also to meet colleagues from across the disciplines.
