New Faculty Survival Guide
Message from the Speaker of the Faculty
& Chair of the Academic Senate
Welcome to CSU, Stanislaus. I am pleased that you have chosen to continue your academic pursuits at our University. You are joining a friendly, engaged, supportive community dedicated to the joy of teaching and learning, the curiosity and passion that drives scholarly and creative activities, and the challenge of using our talents to facilitate positive change in our community.
Shared governance plays a key role in decision-making in the California State University system. By law and by tradition faculty are given a strong voice to determine matters related to curriculum and instruction. We welcome and encourage your involvement in shared governance and will make every attempt to provide you with opportunities for service. Please stop by the John Stuart Rogers Faculty Development Center for assistance with finding and applying University policy, for help with any issues that arise, and to enjoy a quiet place for study and conversation. Feel free to visit the Academic Senate office or call me at 3670. I look forward to meeting you.
