Winter New Faculty Orientation
The Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost will host an abbreviated version of the August orientation to give new faculty an introduction to some of the fundamental aspects of their new position at Iowa State. This orientation will involve all new faculty, both tenure-eligible and non-tenure-eligible, who have joined ISU since August.
Faculty are encouraged to register for this event by emailing Megan Peterson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The agenda includes a welcome by Provost Wickert and an introduction to ISU’s land-grant mission; presentations on building a successful research program and resources for faculty success; an overview of the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching and services available to students; and a discussion of electronic communication and the media. The orientation will conclude with a panel of assistant professors who will share their insights on getting off to a strong start.
While the orientation is geared toward those individuals who are just starting their faculty careers at Iowa State, tenured faculty and senior lecturers are welcome to participate.
