New Faculty Orientation
The new faculty orientation day was held on September 1. The FDC organizes this event every year as a welcome to new faculty. We provide binders with useful information about various people, services and resources at StFX. New faculty get to meet people from across campus as well as other new faculty. We plan on making the binder resources available electronically (to be added soon).
The FDC plans to hold Brown Bag Lunches to discuss various topics. If there is a topic you would like to see, please let us know. We will be posting a schedule soon.
The FDC has been involved with a mentoring program to match junior faculty with faculty members that have been here for a while. More will be posted soon.
