At the New Faculty Orientation held on Aug. 24, new faculty and staff were encouraged to explore teaching resources opportunities; to enjoy campus cultural events such as the Arts and Lecture Series and much more; and told that student success is the University's top priority. Susan Heyward, director of academic advising, provided an overview of the Four-Stage Advising Program -- pre-enrollment advising, first-year advising, exploratory advising and major advising. Dual advising services, where first-time full-time students are assigned to both a professional advisor at the Advising Center and a faculty advisor within the students' academic departments, were also explained. Above, Susan Heyward gives an overview of advising. At left, Michael Palumbo, technical support analyst in Information Technology Services, introduces the computer resources available to new faculty.
