Day 1 meeting from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Grand River Room of Kirkhof Center on the Allendale Campus.

We are excited to welcome new faculty this coming Fall (2023)!

Orientation will focus on engaging new faculty in a collaborative learning experience focused squarely on student success, community building, and exploration or campus resources for both faculty and news students.

  • Highlight critical information about the university, guiding new faculty to construct for themselves a greater understanding of (a) the mission, vision, and values of Grand Valley State University, (b) what is meant by student success, and (c) the hallmarks of a successful new faculty experience
  • Model learner-centered teaching strategies (including interactive discussions, experiential learning, case studies, special topic choices)
  • Foster a sense of community and build relationships among new faculty  
  • Motivate new faculty to see themselves contributing to a supportive, collaborative campus community

We look forward to meeting and engaging with you soon!
