/ Thrive in 5!

Southeast's program to welcome and support new faculty
We strongly encourage all new faculty to join the following five activities during their first year at Southeast.

1: Onboarding Activities*

August 3-4, 2020

These sessions are designed to help you hit the ground running! Learn how to access and use Moodle, the University's learning management system. Get your keys, ID card, Southeast Key, and parking permit. Learn about the University's employee benefits and how to enroll in these. Complete required employee activities, such as Title IX training.

2: New Faculty Conference*

August 12-14, 2020
Full program coming soon!

The NFC introduces new faculty to the mission, vision, and values of the university. The conference also offers a variety of activities to explore and enhance teaching practice, and to help faculty learn about the support and resources available to help them (and their students) succeed. The NFC is an incredible networking opportunity!

3: New Faculty Mentoring*

Coming soon

All new faculty will receive a New Faculty Mentor during their first year at Southeast. New faculty meet their mentor on August 10, during the final day of the New Faculty Conference. New Faculty Mentors help new faculty acclimate to life at Southeast and help them navigate the systems and processes of the university.

4: Faculty Development Days

August 19, 2020
More information coming soon!

Faculty Development Days are open to all faculty, but new faculty are particularly encouraged to attend. Faculty Development Days are designed to explore important themes for teaching and learning, and generally include a guest speaker, break-out activities, and a networking lunch.

5: Touch Base Talks

Coming soon

New faculty and their mentors are highly encouraged to join these sessions, which center around a timely theme to help new faculty navigate and celebrate their first year. These sessions are wonderful opportunities to engage with our University leadership and to network with others.
