Early Career Development Programs
Faculty development at Ohio University is intended to support our exceptional faculty in their roles as engaged teachers, scholars, researchers, creative artists and service providers throughout their academic career. The following programs and opportunities are intended to support new, transitioning and early career OHIO faculty.
New Faculty Welcome
The OHIO New Faculty Welcome provides critical information, resources, and support for new faculty joining any of Ohio University's campuses. The event offers information regarding critical processes and procedures, student support and success, promotion and tenure, tapping resources that support teaching and research, and key introductions to University contacts.
Building Bobcats Community Learning Program
The Building Bobcats: New-to-OU Community Learning Program is designed to provide participants with community-focused networking and learning opportunities. Specifically, program participants will be introduced to unique aspects of Ohio University, the Athens community, and Appalachian Ohio by actively exploring the Ohio University campus and surrounding community.
Thriving in the Academy Workshop Series
The Thriving in the Academy Workshop Series provides support for early career faculty new to the academy. Topics include academic planning, research productivity, healthy relationships and work-life balance.
Diverse Faculty Mentoring Program
The Diverse Faculty Mentoring Program, cosponsored by the Division of Diversity and Inclusion, is part of OHIO’s ongoing investment in inclusive academic excellence. We believe that mentorship is a highly effective tool for engaging and empowering diverse junior faculty as they pursue and secure opportunities for promotion and professional development.
