On Monday, August 19, 2013, The Office of the Provost and the Learning Enhancement Center at The University of Southern Mississippi hosted New Faculty Orientation at the Thad Cochran Center in Hattiesburg. Faculty members from the Hattiesburg and Gulf Coast campus attended the event and were welcomed by Dr. Rodney Bennett, President and Dr. Denis Wisenberg, Provost. Throughout the event, the attendees gained a knowledge of Southern Miss processes and procedures.
Information ranged from teaching online to taking advantage of campus resources like the Think Center located in the International Building. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in other informational events through the Faculty First Year Experience series of seminars designed for new faculty to become familiar with university processes, while also providing information that will contribute to overall professional development and success.
