The FacultyCONNECT Program

UNT is committed to cultivating a culture of ongoing faculty development. A key piece of this is the professional development workshops. The cohort-based FacultyCONNECT program provides the newest members of our UNT community an opportunity to share experiences and gain institutional knowledge through workshops, networking luncheons, teaching and research seminars, and UNT sponsored activities, such as concerts, plays, and sports events. At UNT, we broadly define new faculty to include those individuals who are either in their first, second or third year.

All Faculty

We also have a number of workshops that may be of broader interest to all faculty members.
