The Institute hosts programs for faculty at every stage of their career. Complementing the Faculty Fellowship and Academic Leadership Program Fellowship, our programs are seek to connect faculty.  We do this from the moment new professors arrive for the first semester, through the tenure process, leadership opportunities, service, and retirement. IAH faculty programs support Carolina scholars and artists because we believe that our faculty are crucial to the UNC goal of service.

Since 2013, the IAH New Faculty Program is designed to introduce newly-arrived arts and humanities faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences to interdisciplinary conversations and mentoring networks at UNC-CH. The program engages a cohort of faculty through academic and social events throughout the academic year. The New Faculty Program is open to full-time faculty at all ranks who are within their first three years of appointment at UNC.
