New Faculty Orientation

Each year the Office of Academic Personnel, a division of the Office of the Provost, hosts a New Faculty Orientation to welcome and inform the newest members of our academic teaching community. In partnership with the Professional Staff Congress (PSC) and the Human Resources Department all faculty including adjunct and tenure track faculty were welcomed.      

Virtual New Faculty Welcome afforded the faculty and opportunity to become connected to the college, receive essential information about their rights and benefits, gain insight into our student body, meet faculty colleagues and learn about the many resources available to faculty and students.

Fist year programing continues for all tenure track faculty who are encouraged to participate in our New Faculty 1st year program facilitated by Lehman’s Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) faculty coordinators.
