New Faculty Programs

As a part of our New Faculty Orientation program, The Center for Teaching and Learning hosts a series of events for new faculty throughout the year. These events are intended to follow up the Orientation program by providing you with information as it is needed during the fall and spring semesters.


Spring 2020 

New Faculty Promotion and Tenure: Strategies for Success (2 Sessions)

New faculty often struggle with the nuances of the Promotion and Tenure Process. These sessions are designed to provide new faculty with information about common areas and success strategies to remove some of the mystery out of the P & T process. Individual P & T guidelines will not be covered, but participants are encouraged to obtain copies of all P & T documents and bring them with them to the sessions. You may attend one or both sessions.

The sessions will discuss information such as:
