The Faculty Orientation Series (FOS) is a full-semester training conducted in the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources, in a face-to-face format. Successful completion of this training is required for all new faculty upon hire; the faculty who have joined prior 2022 are also strongly encouraged to attend. The FSO program is seen as a powerful means to engage the faculty members in the Statler community and to acclimate them to the campus. The FOS is designed to engage the faculty in the Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources community by helping them to understand University’s and College’s culture (i.e., history, mission, values, goals, and strategic vision), resources, research support, teaching support, infrastructure, key instructional policies, and best practices in assessment, just to name a few. This orientation is a combination of theory and practice which will be gained through classroom discussions, completing activities, and by engaging in a group or 1:1 session with the facilitators (see detailed in the proposed schedule). As part of the onboarding experience of new faculty or part of the engagement of faculty in the College, follow-on sessions to socialize and meet campus administrators will be also included, as are events for participating faculty to share their work around teaching and scholarship successes. The FOS program is also seen as a source that could offer many opportunities for faculty to continue building their networks and participate in personal and professional development activities, and in social events such as free coffee breaks where faculty members can relax and unwind with colleagues.
