Inaugurated in fall 2001, the First Year Program is designed to assist both experienced faculty, and faculty new to a full-time teaching assignment, become successful teacher/scholars at UW-Whitewater. Specifically, the First Year Program is designed to help faculty new to the campus to: (1) develop a clearer understanding of the institution's traditions, expectations, values, policies and procedures; (2) identify strategies for improving instruction, enhancing student learning, and thriving with scholarly/creative and grant-writing activity in the UW-W context; and (3) cultivate collegial relationships among new faculty from departments across campus.
