New Faculty Orientation

Before the start of each semester, CILA provides newly hired faculty with a series of sessions and workshops designed to help them prepare for teaching at St. Olaf, and for their first days of class. The annual August orientation is more extensive, for the larger number of faculty who start in mid-August or the beginning of September, but there is also a condensed orientation in late January/early February before the beginning of the spring semester.
