New Faculty Program



Launched in 2013, the IAH New Faculty Program is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary and mentoring networks for faculty at the assistant professor rank who are in their first five years at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Interim Program Director: Todd Ramón Ochoa,



The program engages faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences who are new to campus through professional development, networking, and social events throughout the year. The program helps to connect faculty better to resources, opportunities, and the campus. Events that are typically hosted include a welcome-to-campus social, campus tours, publication and writing workshops, and promotion and tenure panels.
