Welcome Event

This event is intended to welcome faculty to USM, provide a brief and basic introduction to resources related to faculty’s teaching, scholarly and service responsibilities; provide new faculty with a chance to network with each other and with colleagues within and across departments and campuses. There will be an opportunity to network, to hear from a panel of representatives of different departments about the resources they offer to help you and your students be successful, followed by a question and answer period.  It is our hope that this welcome event will help new faculty begin to answer these questions for themselves: What USM resources can I use to help me be successful and thrive at USM?
