New Faculty Network Events

The CTL's New Faculty Network professional development events provide new tenure track and term faculty with opportunities to get further acclimated to NMU, develop teaching skills, and build cross-disciplinary peer networks.  There are typically two New Faculty Network events in the fall semester, and another two in the winter semester.
