New Faculty


New Faculty Orientation is just one of the many ways that the SPSU invests in the success of its faculty at all stages of their careers. The new faculty orientation is for full-time and part-time new faculty to SPSU.


The mentoring program organized by CTE tries to pair each new faculty member with an experienced faculty member (the mentor) to develop a more bonded personal relationship during the first year. A mentor is a trusted and experienced advisor who has a direct interest in the development and education of a less experienced individual. A mentor makes a commitment to an assigned mentee to help her or him grow into the organization's culture and become a productive and effective organization member. This program is designed to assist new faculty members to become more familiar with the university culture, know how to accomplish their jobs, to be aware of university resources, and contribute to a sense of community.
