Administrative Best Practices for Engaging New Faculty
Department of Writing and Communication
37th Academic Chairpersons Conference Proceedings
Faculty development and new faculty orientations routinely focus on integrating faculty members into the culture of the institution. While it is necessary to consider ‘new’ faculty holistically, one segment of new faculty members is unfamiliar not just with their institutions, but the academy at large. Millennial faculty, a growing population of the professoriate, present unique challenges and benefits. Traditionally, Department Chairs have the most interaction with new faculty members at the department level. Because of the unique nature of millennial faculty members, identifying administrative best practices for engaging new, specifically millennial, faculty is a crucial leadership exercise.
