Opening Faculty Meeting welcomes new faces

With students scheduled to start classes in a matter of days, Pittsburg State University is making sure their educators are prepared for the semester ahead, as well.

The annual Opening Faculty Meeting will be held this Thursday at 9:30 a.m. at the Crimson and Gold Ballroom in the Overman Student Center. A coffee and conversation session will begin at 8:45 a.m., and the program will run from 9:30-11 a.m.

The Opening Faculty Meeting is held at the beginning of each fall semester to welcome back faculty and staff and greet new members. This year, 76 new faculty and staff members will be introduced – a number that includes employees who have been promoted or taken new positions. Of those, 29 are new teaching faculty working in various academic units across campus.

“We always look forward to the Opening Faculty Meeting when we can introduce those who have chosen to serve our students and lead the educational mission at PSU,” said PSU President Tom Bryant. “It’s a good way to meet our new co-workers and start the school year.”

The meeting is one of the few events during the academic year when faculty are all gathered together. In addition to Bryant, faculty members will hear from Vice President for Academic Affairs Steve Scott, as well as the presidents of the Faculty Senate, the Faculty Association, and the PSU Kansas National Education Association.
