Welcome New Faculty to SLCC!

Thank you for choosing to share your experience and expertise with us as a faculty member at SLCC. We hope to create a welcoming and inclusive working, teaching, and learning environment for you.

Whether you are a full-time faculty member with a full teaching load or an adjunct faculty member teaching a single evening class, we understand that with 10 sites and 61,500+ students each year, it can be tough to learn everything you need to know before your first day of class begins.

This page covers information that will help orient you to the college. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us in Faculty Development.

  • Visit the Faculty Development Sharepoint Site for detailed information regarding New Faculty Orientation.
    • SLCC Login Needed
  • New Faculty Orientations are held every August and January before the start of the academic semester. Our full-day orientation in August is held in person in the Professional Development Center, TB225D, Taylorsville Campus and is open to all new full-time and adjunct faculty at SLCC.
  • Additionally, we offer a virtual orientation for adjunct faculty who are not able to attend the full-day orientation. Faculty Development offers virtual workshops for new faculty prior to orientation to review the New Faculty Checklist, discuss best teaching practices, and support faculty as they get started teaching at SLCC.
  • Our New Faculty Cohort Program runs monthly throughout faculty’s first year. The workshops are held hybrid the first Friday of the month, 10am-12pm in the Professional Development Center, TB225D, Taylorsville Campus and over zoom. Brunch is served at these community building events, and we encourage you to join us in person if possible!
