New Faculty Orientation
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
New tenured and tenure-eligible faculty (assistant, associate, or full professors, hired since September 2012) also attend an orientation specifically designed for them.
The New Faculty Orientation gives new tenure-eligible faculty the opportunity to meet with one another as well as with senior administrators at Iowa State. This day will include presentations by ISU student leadership as well as by other faculty on their experiences with teaching, research, and service. In addition to roundtable presentations on the Ames community, flexible faculty policies, and research funding, Senior Vice President and Provost Wikert will share his insight on what it means to be part of a land grant university. This day also provides new faculty with the opportunity to network and to begin thinking of possible collaborations with peers.
New Faculty Orientation will be held at Reiman Gardens.
