Newcomers Group

The Newcomers Welcome Group brings together volunteers (faculty, faculty spouse/partners) to welcome new faculty and administrators to the CWRU community. Volunteers are available to answer questions regarding the campus, University Circle cultural institutions, greater Cleveland, and any other topics that assist in the transition to Northeast Ohio and Case Western Reserve.

We host two Welcome events each year: a Faculty Family Picnic each August, held on the same day as new faculty orientation, and an annual Wine Tasting Party. Small, casual, Faculty Mixers are also hosted as well a few times a year at a local restaurant from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.

Please join us for our annual Wine Tasting Party on Friday, February 17, 2017, at 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm in Thwing Center Hart Crane Reading Room.  The cost is $10 per person, or $5 per person without wine.  RSVP and pre-payment are due by Friday, February 10, 2017.  Please refer to the Newcomers Annual Wine Tasting Event Flyer for additional information.

If you would like further information, or to volunteer with the Welcome Group, please contact our office.

We look forward to meeting you!


The Newcomers Committee was founded and chaired by faculty spouse Sarah Taylor from 1992 - 2013.  The univeristy is grateful to Sarah for her generous service and continued involvement with welcoming new faculty.
