Onboarding and Orientation
Beginning summer 2020, onboarding for new full-time faculty took the form of a special 6-week session focused on prepping fall semester courses.
Onboarding continues during the academic year with a series of facilitated conversations addressing key topics and resources in support of professional success. New faculty will be contacted with more information on specific sessions.
