Faculty Development strives to enhance career progression regardless of rank or track for the faculty at Utah Valley University. Our office helps faculty connect to the institution through orientation and onboarding in addition to providing seminars, workshops, and learning communities designed to advance faculty career development.


New Faculty Orientation


New Faculty Orientation is for all new, full-time faculty. University leadership will describe UVU’s unique mission and culture; we'll focus on areas of faculty support for teaching, scholarship, service; and discuss the rank, tenure, and promotion (RTP) process. Orientation will also feature a diverse panel of faculty colleagues who will offer their advice on how to succeed at UVU. 

All Aboard


New full-time tenure track faculty and lecturers continue onboarding throughout fall and spring semester with monthly informative sessions. Faculty learn about departments on campus that support faculty in teaching and their professional careers at UVU.

Adjunct Institute


Adjunct Institute is for new UVU adjunct faculty. New adjuncts learn about policies and procedures relevant to teaching as an adjunct at UVU. The online portion of adjunct institute includes general information about employment at UVU and teaching such as UVID cards, email, support for students, and opportunities for teaching development through the Office of Teaching and Learning.  A new online version is coming soon. 



Peer Observation for the Enhancement of Teaching (POET) is program to engage reflect on your teaching by engaging with other faculty from across the campus. The goal of the program is to reflect on your teaching by observing and interacting with other faculty.
