New Faculty OrientationAttendees at the 2019 New Faculty Orientation

Join your colleagues for new faculty orientation, which provides new faculty with opportunities to network with fellow new colleagues and learn more about Wayne State University. Session topics include evidence-based teaching practices, research resources, shared governance, faculty union information, and other resources to assist with your transition to Wayne State University.


Union of Part-Time Faculty OrientationAttendees at the UPTF Orientation working together in groups.

Wayne State University supports the professional development of part-time faculty with Union of Part-Time Faculty (UPTF) Fall and Winter Welcome Back Orientations. Join colleagues to meet and interact with your colleagues from a range of disciplines while learning more about teaching and learning at WSU and resources available to you. As part of this event, the Office for Teaching and Learning (OTL) facilitates an interactive workshop on improving classroom management skills.

In collaboration with the UPTF, our office has developed an onboarding guide for new part-time faculty. We encourage you to explore the guide at your convenience and utilize it as a valuable resource throughout your time at Wayne State.
