Abstract

Each year 50,000 highly educated, accomplished people with no preparation for most of the tasks that comprise college faculty work will be hired. Typical orientation programs do not meet their needs to provide useful, timely information and skill-building. Onboarding programs are more effective, and the benefits go beyond the faculty.

Keywords

Onboard, don’t orient, new faculty

Each year 50,000 highly educated, accomplished people with no preparation for most of the tasks that comprise college faculty work will be hired. Typical orientation programs do not meet their needs to provide useful, timely information and skill-building. Onboarding programs are more effective, and the benefits go beyond the faculty.
