Faculty needed for student orientation panel

The Office of New Student Programs seeks participants for a faculty/adviser panel during summer orientation. The audience is primarily family members of first-year, direct-from-high-school students. The panel is intended to address academic expectations, classroom culture and how family members can support their students academically. Your advice about classroom etiquette and proper communication will help family members understand the academic environment their students will be entering this fall.

Each panel will be composed of one representative from each of the three colleges hosting orientation on that day. Design faculty panel dates are June 2, 7, 13, 23 and 27 from 9 to 10 a.m. each day in the Memorial Union Sun Room. As a panelist, you will be asked to:

  • tell the audience a little about yourself and how you work with students
  • share how family members can best support their student academically
  • answer questions from the audience
  • give family members a piece of helpful advice about academic success as they send their student off to college

Faculty members are asked to commit to participate in two or three orientation sessions. The orientation faculty/adviser panel is the second half of a session called “Key Topics for Family Members.” Please respond online ASAP. You will be informed of your confirmed dates by May 1.
