Faculty Meetings and Faculty Retreat
FACULTY MEETINGS AND FACULTY RETREAT
The Faculty Retreat serves as the first faculty meeting of the year. As Department Chair, you will be called on to introduce new faculty members in your department.
Attendance is strongly encouraged, though not mandatory, and the retreat has boasted a high percentage attendance each year. Each year the President of the Faculty, in consultation with other faculty and the Dean of the College, plans the agenda for the retreat and selects topics for discussion by the faculty.
Regular faculty meetings are held each month (except during breaks) usually on the first Monday afternoon of each month. There is often a faculty breakout session on the third Monday, so these dates should be reserved, as well. It is expected that faculty will attend these meetings, so departments should be careful not to schedule meetings which would conflict with faculty meeting time. Even interview talks for job candidates should be avoided.
