New Faculty Resources

The Lucas Center hosts separate mandatory orientations for all new full-time faculty and new adjunct faculty. New Faculty Orientation (full-time) takes place for a full day each August and is designed to introduce our new colleagues to key university personnel and practices so that they have a foundation for a strong start to their first academic year at FGCU. Adjunct orientations take place for a half-day on a Saturday each August and December. During these sessions our new adjunct colleagues are introduced to policies, procedures, and practices that are relevant to their role as instructors, and we share information about support for teaching and learning that is available through the Lucas Center. Our instructional design colleagues from the Department of Digital Learning participate in both orientations and are available to support new full-time and adjunct faculty with the Canvas Learning Management System and all aspects of online and hybrid teaching.
