Every August the CTL partners with the Dean of the Faculty to organize a two-day orientation for all new full-time faculty and fellows.
Faculty, administrators, and staff from across the College come together during New Faculty Orientation to welcome our new faculty and introduce them to the resources available to them.
In addition, orientation serves as an opportunity for the new faculty to get to know each other and to begin what we hope is an on-going conversation during their time at Stonehill about teaching and learning and their roles as educators.
