Faculty Week

Last updated on Aug 23, 2022

The College hosts faculty weeks prior to the start of the fall semester, and after the end of the spring semester. All ranked faculty are required to attend faculty week events and be available for meetings scheduled by their program or division. Unranked faculty are invited to attend any faculty week event, and are required to attend any meetings specific to their course teaching assignments that semester. All new faculty (ranked and unranked) are required to attend new faculty orientation (held in January for spring hires).
