During the new-faculty orientation, we will be covering topics such as

We will conclude with lunch during which you will have the opportunity to meet representatives from several LMU offices that can support you during your teaching, such as the Library, the Academic Resource Center, Center for Service and Action, Registrar's Office, IT, etc. Breakfast and light refreshments are available during the morning.
