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

2021-2022 New Faculty Agenda

The new faculty convene during odd weeks each quarter during Monday governance hours (3:15-5:00). Additionally, new faculty participate in bi-quarterly Teaching at Evergreen Conversations to discuss matters of teaching well with their colleagues. Resources, links, and other useful information are available in the new faculty canvas group.
