Each fall the Office for Faculty Development hosts a New Faculty Welcome Reception for faculty hired in the past 1-5 years. The event, typically held in early October, brings together new faculty and senior leaders for a relaxed evening of networking.
The reception is held at the Doris Duke Center at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens and includes wine and hors d'oeuvres. Newer faculty from the Schools of Medicine and Nursing receive invitations to the event via e-mail and snail mail. Faculty are encouraged to invite their PI or a colleague. All are welcome. This is an informal event designed to welcome faculty and introduce them to the Office for Faculty Development.
