Effective Faculty Onboarding & Retention
Wednesday, March 23, 2022, 2-3:30 pm

Research shows that successful onboarding of new faculty leads to higher levels of job satisfaction, reduced stress, and may also lead to increased faculty retention. Join Drs. Larry Buckley and André O. Hudson for an interactive workshop covering guiding principles for effective faculty onboarding. Learn about the purpose of onboarding and the different approaches including the “welcome mat” approach, the process of developing effective and proactive onboarding. The importance of culture, environment and mentoring in the onboarding process will also be covered. Participants will have the opportunity to develop a framework that is specific to their respective academic units.

Dr. André O. Hudson is Head, Thomas H. Gosnell School of Life Sciences, College of Science. Dr. Larry Buckley is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and former head of the School of  Life Sciences.
