The New Faculty Orientation for the 2015-2016 Academic Year will be held

Tuesday, August 19th, 2015

at the

Steel Dynamics Keith E. Busse IPFW Alumni Center

located at

1528 E California Rd.

across from the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum and beside the Holiday Inn at IPFW.


Jumpstart for New Faculty will be held from August 10-12th.

It is all-day Monday through Wednesday. The hands-on workshop is designed to have you ready for the semester and prepared for your first week of class.

Duty Week begins August 17th and your orientation is a day-long affair on the 18th. The Jumpstart for New Faculty evolved from suggestions from new faculty several years ago because Duty Week is packed with meetings and such so you have little time to prepare to teach.

Jumpstart for New Faculty is voluntary but it is highly recommended for all new IPFW faculty, even if you have experience teaching. Be sure to take advantage of this remarkable opportunity!!

A new instructional technologies event is being planned for August 13th.  The Digital Age Seminar is open to ALL faculty.  More information will be released as it is finalized.
