New Faculty

Center for Teaching and Learning through New Faculty Orientation emphasizes the power of career planning in relationship to how and when to provide service within the department and the college, and when and how to plan for publishing, along with balancing their contractual teaching responsibilities – all of which are required for tenure-track faculty to be reappointed, be granted tenure, and/or be promoted.

New Faculty Orientation is a continuing introductory activity for all new faculty hired at  the college. During the 2020-21 academic year, we welcomed 7 new faculty members. There are thirteen, 3-hour mandatory meetings and one year-end celebration to introduce the faculty to the CTL Advisory Council. The training includes the following topics: How can we help you become a part of Hostos, Team Based Leaning, Mentoring, Journey to Cultural Awareness, Moving Toward Reappointment, Tenure and Promotion and Governance, Applying for Grants and Planning Research, Sexual Harassment and the EEO/Non-Discrimination  Policy, Contracts and other College policies, Peer Observation, Research Matters: Developing Student Ownership of the Research Process, SoTL/IRB, Service: Being Open to Opportunities, Introduction of different college-wide committees, Teaching online courses among others.

To learn more details about these topics, click on the 2020-21 Annual Report of this initiative.
