Oct. 24 New Faculty Institute luncheon focuses on resources

Submitted by Tamara Bauer

The New Faculty Institute will host a luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, in the Flint Hills Room at the K-State Student Union.

The New Faculty Institute is a universitywide program sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Center to introduce newly hired faculty to K-State's missions of teaching, research and service, and to facilitate their success at the university. The institute facilitates the transition of newly hired faculty members into the K-State academic environment by providing information and tools that can help them become successful as educators and researchers at K-State. Each month, the institute offers social luncheons filled with information, networking and food.

Program for Oct. 24: What are the resources available for faculty and for students?
Navigating the opportunities and resources at K-State will be an integral aspect to your success at K-State. During this session we will hear from:

  • Brian Niehoff, associate provost for institutional effectiveness and a professor of management in the College of Business Administration.
  • Heather Reed, assistant vice president for student life, and senior associate dean and director of student life.

This session will explore questions about resources for faculty and staff such as professional development opportunities; where to look for financial support for travel, research and conferences; suggestions for collaboration among departments and with industry partners; and more. The session will include resources available for students, with a focus on identifying students in crisis/need and the role faculty can play to provide advocacy and referrals.

Please RSVP no later than noon on Monday, Oct. 22.  

For more information, contact Tamara Bauer, New Faculty Institute coordinator, at tamara@k-state.edu, or Jana Fallin, the Teaching and Learning Center director, at teachingandlearning@k-state.edu.

We look forward to seeing you.
