Every August, before the fall semester begins, the CEE organizes and hosts a welcome and orientation for all new and continuing non-tenure track USD faculty, including part-time and full-time adjuncts, lecturers, postdocs, teaching professors, professors of practice, or any other faculty who want to hear about USD.  Attendees will learn about:

¨ The mission of USD and our Catholic identity

¨ What it means to teach a liberal arts education at USD

¨ Important policies regarding students and faculty, such as FERPA, academic integrity, disability services, student-athletes, and student evaluations

¨ Course design and syllabus essentials

The orientation includes a short welcoming mixer with drinks and appetizers as well as a dinner and networking reception where representatives from many campus resource centers and departments make themselves available to meet faculty and provide information and guidance regarding their services. Departments represented include Human Resources, Academic Technology Services, Student Wellness, the Center for Student Success, the Center for Community, Awareness and Social Action, the Center for Inclusion and Diversity, the Changemaker HUB, and many more.
