First Year Faculty Experience

The First Year Faculty Experience (FYFE) workshops were first offered beginning Fall 2012 to address and anticipate the needs of faculty new to the CSUEB campus. Comprised of ten to twelve workshops across the academic year, the workshops fall under three broad topical categories: teaching, research, and campus policies and governance. Attendance is rewarded through stipends and a year-end gift from Academic Affairs.
