2017 New Faculty Orientation

Duke University's New Faculty Orientation (NFO) is meant for all new to Duke full-time regular rank faculty and those faculty joining the preceding year but were unable to attend this event. Our Duke-wide new faculty orientation includes a comprehensive overview of the university's administrative structure as well as special topic presentations, resource sessions and a campus tour meant to assist faculty as they begin their careers at Duke. Moreover, the orientation provides new faculty with the opportunity to engage with colleagues across the university as part of their earliest introduction to the greater Duke community.

The New Faculty Orientation is sponsored by the Office of the Provost for Faculty Advancement and organized through the Office of Faculty Research Mentoring.
