Programs for New Faculty

Bryn Mawr College is committed to helping new faculty learn about and understand the different aspects of the College and its culture as well as be oriented to the duties and expectations of Bryn Mawr College faculty members.

New Faculty Workshops

Through the Mellon Teaching and Learning Institute, the College offers new faculty workshops, such as syllabus development, to new members of the faculty.

New Faculty Orientation

The Office of the Provost hosts an orientation program for incoming full-time members of the faculty.  It typically precedes the first day of classes.

New Faculty Conversation Series

In addition, the Office of the Provost hosts a monthly luncheon series on various Fridays throughout the academic year.  The luncheons are organized around a relevant topic. 

New Faculty Mentoring Program

Finally, the College has a New Faculty Mentoring Program that is intended for new faculty who are in the first year of a tenure-track appointment; new faculty who are in a continuing non-tenure track (CNTT) appointment that carries the expectation of promotion in due course to Senior Lecturer; and interim faculty members who are teaching full-time.  The Program affords new faculty with the opportunity to have a mentor from outside of his/her department or program to assist them in getting to know the College.  Faculty who are interested should inquire with the Provost's office.

New Faculty with Spouses in Academia

The College extends courtesy non-employee affiliations to faculty spouses who are in academia. Faculty who are interested should inquire with the Provost's office.
