New Faculty Orientation Plan.
Triton Coll., River Grove, IL.
This report provides an overview of Triton College's (Illinois) New Faculty Orientation Plan, which was developed in light of the large number of retirements and new hires expected by the year 2000. The purpose of the plan is to assist newly hired instructors to move productively into their professional roles and to become actively involved in the campus community. Program goals include the improvement of teaching and professional service skills, the creation of a professional development plan, and active involvement in the campus community. Program components include new faculty mentoring, a monthly schedule of mentoring activities, the appointment of mentors, faculty portfolios, campus activities, special events, recognition, a Web page, and assessment of program components. An appendix provides a list of members of the academic senate's professional development committee. (MDM)
