First Year Foundations

The First - Year Foundations Program (FYF) expands the training and conversations that start at New Faculty Orientation. This series aims to support new faculty in their teaching, research, and overall success as a new member of our Southern Miss community. New faculty should plan to attend these required events.

Spring Sessions

Community is an essential part of academia. One that has been made all the more difficult to build and maintain as the COVID-19 pandemic has moved much of academia’s operations to the virtual setting. The CFD wants to give you the opportunity to build community at Southern Miss with established faculty outside of your academic unit. This event will be more of an informal discussion with some guiding questions lead by experienced faculty who have a welcoming spirit and are engaged with some of the CFD’s signature programs.
