New Faculty Resources
The Office of Academic Affairs hosts orientation and ongoing development sessions for new faculty. The initial orientation is held in August and is designed to welcome new faculty to the campus and share important information and resources. A monthly series is offered to all faculty during their first 3 years at PC and includes sessions on topics such as academic advising, interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship, and teaching with technology.
New Faculty Programs
The New Faculty Welcome Guide is a resource for newly-hired faculty members at Providence College. It provides an overview of resources, both on- and off-campus, that serve faculty, as well as a “Getting Started Checklist” and a list of important dates. The Welcome Guide also includes a list of grants and opportunities available to faculty at Providence College. This guide should be used in conjunction with the Faculty Handbook and the Providence College website, which provide detailed information about faculty responsibilities and available resources.
Each August, the Office of Academic Affairs organizes a one-day orientation to welcome all new faculty to Providence College. The orientation provides an opportunity for new faculty to learn about the College and its policies, procedures, and programs. It also gives them an opportunity to meet and become acquainted with other new faculty.

Supplemental Workshops & Social Events
The Office of Academic Affairs, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and the Instructional Technology Development Program also invite new faculty members to participate in supplemental workshops/demonstrations and social events designed specifically to ease the transition to Providence College. At the conclusion of each semester, a social event also brings together the new cohort.
Monthly Programming Series
The monthly series is an extension of our New Faculty Orientation/programming in August. The series was thoughtfully constructed with topics that build on each other, with the goal of providing important information gradually to tenure-track faculty in their first, second, or third year. Recent topics included developmental and procedural advising, funding sources for scholarship, supporting unique and emerging populations, and channeling your writerly self.
