Abstract

Formalized new-faculty orientation programs are not a luxury but rather a crucial necessity to recruit and retain competent and qualified faculty. The author describes the contents of what might be contained in such a program. Specific educational purposes and their link to mission, vision, and values are discussed. Selection of topics and objectives will also be explored, along with learning experiences, program organization, and outcome evaluation.
