Update: New Faculty Orientation

MCC has decided to cancel the New Faculty Orientation that was scheduled on 1/20/16.  The office of Professional Development is available to meet with any newly hired faculty.  Please contact us if you would like to set up an individual meeting at x3661.


Spring 2016 Orientation

The Spring 2016 New Faculty Orientation (NFO) will occur on Wednesday, January 20th on our Bedford campus.  All new faculty hired before 1/15/16 will receive an invitation with information and resources both in the mail and by email.  Faculty hired after 1/14/16 will receive information and an invitation to our mini-orientation scheduled on 2/5/16 on our Lowell campus.  In the meantime, all new and returning faculty can access resources by clicking our Orientation link on this site.  We are looking forward to meeting you all soon.

NFO Thanks

The Spring, 2015, New Faculty Orientation was a success.  The PD office will like to thank those who helped facilitate the day:

Paulo Barrio, Assistant Director of Professional Development; Wendy Khadjikian, Administrative Assistant; Clea Andreadis, Associate Provost of Academic Affairs; Noreen McGinness Olson, Director of Academic Support Programs; Nancy Curll, Manager of E-Learning; Coordinators of Library Services: Donna Maturi & Ellen Royalty; Ellen Ricca, Web & Support Application Manager; Lisa Gibson, Assistant Registrar; Pamela Flaherty, Dean of Students; and Peter Shea, Director of Professional Development.

New Faculty Orientation

Happy New Year!  The PD office is gearing up for the next New Faculty Orientation (NFO) scheduled for Thursday, January 15, 2015.  If your HR paperwork is completed before the end of the day on 1/9/15, you will receive an invitation to the NFO.  We understand there are often some “last-minute” hires, so we will be holding Orientation Office Hours on 1/29 & 1/30 for those who were unable to attend the NFO.  Check the Newscaster for details.


We are looking forward to the upcoming New Faculty Orientation on August 28th!  Based on previous orientation feedback, we will email new hires a list of useful links and resources prior to the 28th, so come with questions and get ready to meet some colleagues.  Please note, if you are hired after August 21st, you will receive information on a make-up orientation time on September 10th.
