New Faculty Orientation – Session 1

September 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

During these two half-day sessions via Zoom, we will introduce new faculty to matters related to faculty governance, faculty diversity, academic personnel review process, active learning and pedagogy and graduate student resources. In addition, a panel of faculty will share what they wish they knew in their first year. This year’s program will include a welcome from Chancellor Gillman, a conversation with Interim Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Hal Stern, and a Life Theater presentation on sexual harassment prevention training. Separate registration for the Sexual Violence Sexual Harassment (SVSH) Prevention Training presented by the Life Theatre Group and attendance is required in order for faculty to receive credit for completion.

The Office of Academic Personnel has also created a New Faculty Resources webpage. It is housed under the “Resources” tab on the Office of Academic Personnel website. This webpage is a place where new faculty can go to find general information from various areas within the campus community.
