New Faculty Orientation

On Wednesday, August 12, 2009, twenty-three new University of Missouri – Kansas City faculty members attended the New Faculty Orientation Program. The program was primarily focused on the teaching/learning process and on conducting research as a faculty member at UMKC.

UMKC faculty involved in the panel presentation on teaching/learning included: Dr. Cindy Amyot, Dr. Wayne Vaught, Dr. Linda Breytspraak and Dr. Kathleen Kilway. Dr. Susan Adler, Dr. Mike Kruger, Dr. Len Dobens and Dr. Trent Guess were the UMKC faculty panelists discussing strategies related to pursuing a productive research agenda.

There were also opportunities for faculty to visit with representatives from a variety of campus services, and “giveaways” were provided by Swinney Recreation Center, UMKC Intercollegiate Athletics, the Kansas City Repertory Theatre, KCUR, UMKC Dining Services and the UMKC Bookstore!! Faculty were provided with tours of Swinney Recreation Center, Miller Nichols Library, the FaCET Offices and the Health Sciences Library.

We would like to welcome the new faculty to the University of Missouri – Kansas City and hope they have a great first semester!
