New faculty members face many challenges. While your career prospects are exciting, you may struggle to keep your head above water, trying to meet multiple demands at the same time. The most important lesson: Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Develop strong relationships with colleagues and make full use of the professional development opportunities the campus has to offer. The CFE provides services specifically tailored to faculty members new to Carolina and those in their first five years at UNC. Or come see us to develop an individual development plan.
