The 2016 new faculty orientation was a resounding success. The Brown Center for Faculty Innovation and Excellence welcomed 16 tenure-track and 15 visiting faculty from 27 institutions as well as 12 adjunct faculty, an ALLEX Asian language scholar and two Fulbright Language Teaching Assistants. The orientation consisted of a diverse program designed to orient our new faculty to the policies, practice and community at Stetson. Each participant received a Roadmap for Success with resources and information to help them in their first year. Additional copies of the roadmap are available – please send your request to the Brown Center.
A special thanks goes out to over 40 faculty and staff that provided information and facilitated workshops on topics that included inclusive excellence, career and academic advising, a syllabus bootcamp and the general education curriculum. To dig deeper into the program, visit the 2016 New Faculty Orientation Recap on the Brown Center Blog. A big thank you to those of you that participated in the Third Annual Resource Fair.
None of this would have been possible without the work and dedication of the New Faculty Orientation committee – our hats are off to you! If you would like to join this dynamic group of movers and shakers, please contact the Brown Center.
