Welcome and welcome back, Adjunct Faculty!

COLI staff will be hosting the New Adjunct Orientation on 8/24 and 9/7. We hope that you will be able to join us. This is not* mandatory, but it will be packed with beneficial information and tips about teaching at Canisius. We can’t wait to meet you!

From Sara R MorrisAssociate Vice President for Academic Affairs

Dear Members of the Canisius College Adjunct Faculty:

It’s hard to believe that it is almost time to start the new academic year.  The first day of classes is August 29th, but I know that there is a lot of preparation before classes begin.

As part of our commitment to increasing faculty development opportunities on campus, we are offering the following opportunities that are open to all Adjunct Faculty. I would like to invite you to one of our upcoming new instructor orientation session:

  • Thur 8/24- 5:00pm-6:30pm, OM115 (Please come early on this date to tour the library, 4-5pm.)
  • Thur 9/7- 5:00pm-6:30pm, OM115

All Adjunct Faculty are welcome and are encouraged to attend one of the sessions above. Both sessions will be held in Old Main 115 (Campus Map). Light refreshments and food will be served.

The orientation will include information from human resources, information about services available on campus, teaching for mission at a Jesuit college, and an introduction to the tools supported by the Center for Online Learning and Innovation (including the use of Desire2Learn [D2L], our course management software).

I hope you will consider joining us at one of these upcoming orientations.  We ask that you please RSVP to Kathy Peter at peter@canisius.edu or at 888-2121 so we have an estimate of the number of people attending.

Thanks for all you do for our students, and best wishes for a fabulous semester.
