Welcoming new faculty

Saint Mary’s was delighted to welcome twenty new instructors at the Welcome Day for New Faculty on Wednesday, August 28th.

This initiative of the VPAR office helps engage new faculty in our scholarly community with a full-day orientation. The new professors heard from faculty, senior administrators and students to get a better sense of life at Saint Mary’s, and participated in workshops and presentations on the teaching and learning, research, and service environment at Saint Mary’s.

The event also launched a new continuous professional development program, designed with the Studio for Teaching and Learning, that will provide relevant and timely information sessions to support new faculty throughout the year.
