Faculty Orientations

Orientation dates for Spring Semester will be posted in November.

One or more Faculty Orientation sessions will precede the start of each academic term. These sessions cover the basics of academic policies and practices, recording keeping systems and requirements, the student conduct process, students with disabilities and a review of campus resources.

New full-time faculty -- tenure track and annual contract -- will have an additional half day to learn more about the expectations and opportunities for their positions.

All new faculty can also take an additional introduction to Blackboard class offered by Instructional Technologies. All courses have an online space (called a "shell") available in Blackboard, the college's online course management system. Even if you are not teaching an online course you can use Blackboard to share materials, communicate with students and even post and grade assignments or quizzes.
