At New Mexico Tech we support ongoing professional development of faculty. This includes hosting guest speakers and running workshops on a variety of topics. We also have regularly scheduled focused training events, such as those described below.
Faculty Development Week
Every year the Office of Academic Affairs organizes workshops for the week prior to the beginning of the fall semester on a variety of topics of interest to faculty. If you have suggestions for future workshops or guest speakers contact Peter Mozley.
Orientation for New Faculty
Prior to the beginning of the fall semester the Office of Academic Affairs runs a day-long training session for new faculty members. For more information contact Peter Mozley.
Senate Faculty Development Committee
The Faculty Senate has a very active Faculty Development Committee, which organizes mentorship for new faculty and training events every semester. In recent years the committee has hosted a very successful spring-semester Faculty Research Workshop in collaboration with the Vice President for Research and Economic Development. Events scheduled so far for the 2018-2017 academic year include:
- November 9, 8:00 - 10:30 am, Faculty mentor/mentee breakfast, CITL. This is a great opportunity for informal conversations between faculty mentors and mentees. Breakfast burritos, coffee, etc.
