Who attends Faculty Welcome?
  • All new full and part-time faculty who are new to JMU or who are newly tenured or promoted to full this year. Even if you have been at another institution, you should attend Faculty Welcome to meet new colleagues and explore the academic culture of JMU.
  • Invitations are sent via email to newly hired faculty in July. If you do not receive an invitation, please accept our apologies. You are still invited! It is hard to catch up with you during your moving process.
Faculty Welcome is designed to...
  • Welcome faculty (back) to JMU,
  • Offer opportunities for networking and community building,
  • Enhance the success of faculty by encouraging a comprehensive approach to career planning,
  • Engage faculty in professional development that supports a diverse range of faculty careers and identities,
  • Orient participants that are new to JMU to the institution's culture, and
  • Provide faculty with timely resources related to teaching, scholarship, service, and more.
