The Sherrerd Center organizes a variety of activities to help integrate new faculty into the Smith community and to help them think more deeply about their teaching. This begins with a presentation during new faculty orientation and continues with monthly New Faculty Seminar meetings. We offer a January teaching workshop to provide time for reflection on experiences from the fall semester while planning for the spring. We also coordinator mentoring for new tenure track faculty through the Board of Counselors program.
New Faculty Seminars meet from noon - 1:00 p.m. in Seelye 207, with lunch provided. The dates are as follows. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Christine Pelletier.
