  • We're delighted that you are joining Seattle University!

    These webpages are designed to help you with your orientation as a new faculty member, and are intended to complement your experiences in our New Faculty Institute (NFI). NFI is organized by a planning team made up of representatives from the colleges on behalf of the Provost. 

    NFI has six goals:

    1. To build community across campus through cross-disciplinary conversation.
    2. To explore the Jesuit Catholic mission of the university.
    3. To model effective teaching practices. 
    4. To discuss the art of balancing teaching, research/scholarship, and service.
    5. To gain an awareness of key legal implications of working in higher education.
    6. To explain University-level expectations around rank and tenure for tenure-track NFI participants (in a follow-up session).
