Calendar and program

To accommodate the early start date to Fall Quarter, NFI 2020 comprised two half-days and one follow-up session prior to the start of the quarter, with five further sessions spread out in Fall and Winter Quarters.

The NFI Planning Team of faculty created a flipped program such that information components are available online so that time together is devoted to activity and discussion. NFI this year is being delivered entirely remotely to allow participants maximum flexibility.

Dates and times are as follows:

  • Tuesday, September 1 | 9:15–12:45 | NFI Day 1
  • Thursday, September 3 | 9:30–12:15 | NFI Day 2

Follow-up sessions:

  • Friday, September 4 | 2:00–3:30 | An ounce of prevention: Advice from the Office of the University Counsel
  • Friday, September 25 | 3:30–5:00 | Faculty Work/Work Balance
  • Friday, October 9 | 3:30–5:00 | Student perspectives on studying at SU
  • Friday, October 23 | 3:30–5:00 | Faculty perspectives on teaching at SU
  • Friday, January 22 | 3:30–5:00 | Thriving as a non-tenure-track faculty member
  • Friday, January 29 | 3:30–5:00 | University Rank and Tenure panel
