New Faculty Institute 2011

    Each year, Harvard University welcomes a cadre of outstanding new faculty to our academic community. We hope that each will feel welcomed and find the resources needed to have an easy transition to life at Harvard.

    The Office of Faculty Development & Diversity offers the New Faculty Institute and other events to provide new faculty with opportunities to meet other faculty from across the University. This section provides an overview of the New Faculty Institute activities, and we look forward to meeting each new member of our academic community at this event.
