To ensure the success of UTA new and early-career faculty, Faculty Affairs has designed a three-year development series to assist new faculty adjust to their roles and responsibilities as a new full-time faculty member while also building a sense of belonging and community with their peers here at UTA.

New faculty meet for monthly, 1-hour collaboration sessions, on a rotation of scheduled topics that new faculty often encounter early in their career. Active participation in the Early Career Faculty Development Series prepares new faculty on a successful pathway for professional advancement while building connections with their new colleagues across the university.
