Welcome to Ursinus College!
Beginning a career as a teacher-scholar at any institution can be both exhilarating and challenging, and new faculty development is one of our chief priorities at the college. We aim to support new faculty as teachers, scholars, and citizens of the college as they become part of the Ursinus community.
New faculty meet biweekly in the fall semester in a colloquium organized by the Dean and Associate Dean. The colloquium introduces new faculty to teaching at Ursinus and in the liberal arts environment more generally, maintaining scholarly directions, and connecting faculty with resources, among other topics. The colloquium provides an opportunity for new faculty to connect with colleagues in the Institute for Student Success, the Teaching and Learning Institute, the Institute for Inclusion and Equity, and other sectors of the college.
Tenure-track faculty are partnered with a mentor and all non-tenure-track faculty can be paired with a mentor at their request. Faculty seeking mentoring support should contact Associate Dean Meredith Goldsmith (firstname.lastname@example.org).
