With the collaborative sponsorship of the Office of Academic Affairs and
the Center for Teaching Excellence, the New Faculty Seminars provide orientation
and guidance to new full time faculty in sessions led by senior faculty members,
administrators and staff. The format is a mix of informational presentations,
group discussions, and interactive workshops. Topics range from an introduction
to college resources, policies and procedures to pedagogical issues and best
practices. New areas continue to be added that reflect current college initiatives.
These initiatives include an emphasis on general education goals and student
learning outcomes assessment.
