New Faculty Resources

A special welcome to new faculty!  We hope that you will find everything that you need on our website, but if not, don’t hesitate to email us for assistance!

1.  New Faculty Orientation

Held at the beginning of the academic year, our orientation introduces new full and part time faculty to our mission, key policies, and to members of the faculty community.  Our goal is to provide basic information about the resources that you need to get started.  Contact Faculty Development for more information.

2.  How Do Things Get Done?

(We’ll be adding a link here to the contract and the faculty handbook – coming soon!)

3.  Policies

(We’ll be adding a link here to the faculty handbook and probably the contract too – more soon!)

4.  Mentoring

Our mentoring program includes partnering you with a faculty member in or outside of your school, informational and community building wine and cheese events, mentoring lunches, and more.  Contact us  for more information and read through all of the resources on the mentoring page.

Department Chair Resources
