The Center for Teaching and Learning and the Vice President for Academic Affairs hosted the annual orientation for new staff and faculty on August 28.
Twenty-two faculty and 20 staff attended. Several have been working at Augsburg for more than six months, while one had just started on Monday.
The orientation included presentations about the College’s mission, history, and students, as well as on Information Technology, Central Services, and Safety and Security.
” The orientation was a great introduction to the Augsburg culture and mission,” says Leslie Larson, events and conference coordinator. “It really helped me understand how the students are the main focus on everything we do. Not being from an academic background, I really appreciated the information on how the faculty and staff work together.”Brian Noy, the new Campus Kitchen director, adds, “It was great to see so many people from across campus interacting.”
Tuesday’s orientation concluded with the President’s Community Time/CTL
Wine and Cheese Reception, which was attended by over 40 returning faculty
and staff. First year faculty continued orientation on August 29.
The faculty-staff mentoring program will be launched in early September
to continue to foster connections by pairing new with seasoned colleagues.
