New Faculty Academy

Each academic year, Evergreen welcomes a cohort to join the faculty. The Learning and Teaching Commons is delighted to welcome and orient faculty. Throughout their first year, new faculty participate in orientation sessions as their governance assignment. These sessions include:

  1. Intensive summer gatherings designed to support curriculum planning and design
  2. A series of workshops and campus spotlights during the academic year
  3. Online modules
  4. Celebrations and social activities

2022-2023 New Faculty Agenda

The new faculty convene during Monday governance hours (3:15-5:00) several times each quarter. Additionally, new faculty discuss matters of teaching well with their colleagues through participation in the Commons Seminars. Resources, links, and other useful information are available in the new faculty canvas group.
