Each August, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences welcomes new faculty to Harvard through new faculty orientations, organized by the FAS office of faculty affairs.  In August 2015, the Bok Center participated in both the New Faculty Institute for new tenure-track faculty, and Navigating Harvard, an orientation for new College Fellows, preceptors, and lecturers.  Through a variety of formats, the Bok Center staff led workshops on topics that are essential for new instructors, including course design, inclusive teaching, and setting the tone on the first day of class.  Additionally, the Bok Players performed for the first time as part of the Bok Center’s new applied theatre initiative, engaging new faculty to reflect on the diverse perspectives that students bring to the classroom.

76 new TENURE-TRACK Faculty, College Fellows, Preceptors, and Lecturers ATTENDED THE NEW FACULTY ORIENTATION in 2015-2016
