Faculty Corner


If you are joining our faculty (TAs, GAs & Lecturers included!) for the first time, please look at the Center for Faculty Development page. It contains general information on who to contact for parking and email and much, much more. 

For information on greensheet language, plagiarism reporting and instructor composition assessment, look under Literature or Composition.

If a form needs to be added or any section needs to be further developed, please contact the Department Administrator.  It's our hope that this Faculty Corner will eventually thrive with Best Practices for Pedagogy and other things to help you with your time in our Department.
