Welcome to MSU!

Orientation of new faculty at any institution is essential for creating the culture of the university. At Montana State we aim to build a welcoming and inclusive culture that spreads into classroom, research, creative and community spaces, and to equip faculty with the knowledge of how to promote student success through achieving excellence in teaching, scholarship and service. 

New Faculty Orientation will take place in two sessions this year:

 

 

 

Because the information needs for these two groups are different, we are having two events to tailor them to these specific audiences. Faculty should recieve an invitation via email to register for one of the orientations. If you are a new faculty member and have not received an invitation, please send us an email at cfe@montana.edu.

COVID-19 Precautions

These sessions will be taking place virtually and in-person, giving faculty their choice of how to participate. If they choose to participate in-person, here are some of the COVID19 guidelines that will be in place for the sessions.

In order to mitigate health concerns we will encourage participants to:

  • sit at tables with the 6-feet distance to maintain proper social distancing,
  • wear a cloth mask or face shield as appropriate,
  • use provided hand sanitizer at the tables, and
  • experience extra cleaning of tables and chairs throughout the day.

You will indicate your choice when you register for how you would like to participate.

Early Career Faculty Success Program

Orientation of new faculty plays an essential role in establishing the culture of the university. Our Early Career Faculty Success Program is designed with this idea in mind. It is aimed to build a welcoming and inclusive culture that spreads into classroom, research, creative and community spaces, and to equip faculty with the knowledge of how to promote student success through achieving excellence in teaching, scholarship and service.
