New Faculty Orientation

orientation

Each new faculty is encouraged to attend the face-to-face orientation provided at least once a quarter.  In this training, participants learn about our college culture and organization, faculty rights and responsibilities, and resources to support faculty and students.
It is a great opportunity to meet other members of the BC community.
