Welcoming new faculty

  • Each fall we host a New Faculty Orientation for all new academics. This two-day event provides an overview of UM including strategic priorities, teaching, research and student supports. We also offer monthly workshops to support a successful transition to UM and opportunities for new faculty to network and socialize.

    Attend our 2023 orientation: Monday, Aug. 28 and Tuesday, Aug. 29.

    For an introduction to teaching and learning, research and scholarly work, and tenure and promotion at UM, consult our Faculty eResource Guide (PDF) which is located on the UM Intranet. Log in to the UM Intranet using your UMNetID and find the helpful resource on the "Employee onboarding" site under "Employee resources".

Academic integrity

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Program

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) Program provides opportunities for professors, instructors, and librarians to meaningfully engage in projects that increase knowledge in pedagogy and learning.

UM Student Rating of Instruction (UM SRI)

A key part of our commitment to students and teaching excellence is the ongoing evaluation of courses by students.

The UM SRI allows the opportunity for students to provide summative feedback for instructors on identified teaching priorities and gives instructors an opportunity to collect additional feedback for their own professional development.

Contact the UM SRI team
If you have questions regarding the UM SRI process, please contact the SRI management team.
