We hold two annual welcome events each year. The Faculty Family Picnic in August, the afternoon of the New Faculty Orientation, and the Annual Wine Tasting Event in February.
Welcome New Faculty
Starting in a new position can be daunting, but be assured that Case Western Reserve Univeristy wants you to succeed and intends that you enjoy a long, distinguished, and rewarding career here.
The Office of Faculty Development provides ongoing programming as well as semester long programs such as Mentor Fellows as well as the year-long program To Tenure & Beyond. We are also responsive to faculty initiated requests for new or ad hoc programs. The University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education is the source for programs to improve your teaching.
While career development for faculty of all ranks is our primary charge, we have additional priorities to support and engage the faculty member as a whole person through community building.
We host large events like the faculty Welcome Picnic and the Annual Wine Tasting, and more intimate ones like writing and research groups, to encourage cross department contact, collaboration, and friendship.
Please visit our offices in Thwing Center, Hitchcock Hall. We look forward to meeting you!
