​Office of the Provost Faculty Orientation

The Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement are pleased to invite Columbia faculty to enroll in the online Office of the Provost Faculty Orientation to get you ready for the upcoming academic year. This virtual orientation program aims to complement your own school’s orientation activities by introducing a range of University resources and offices devoted to supporting your teaching and scholarship.

Who can participate in New Faculty Orientation?

Though the content is especially useful for new or junior faculty, New Faculty Orientation is open to all Columbia faculty.

What information will be covered?

The content you find included will acquaint you with the offices that support faculty at Columbia:

How long will it take to complete the course?

We estimate that the course will take four hours to complete. As the content is presented asynchronously, you can complete the modules at your own pace. We recommend that you bookmark any information that you would like to reference later.

What if I have additional questions about the course?
  • If you have general or technical questions about the course, please contact the CTL at [email protected].
  • If you have questions about the content, please find each office's contact information in each module of the course.
What if I have additional questions about life at Columbia?
