Faculty Orientation

SAMSUNG            The semester started officially for our faculty on Wednesday with a faculty orientation and in-service training day. It was good to see everybody together again and I think everyone is ready to get back to work. I had the opportunity to begin the school year with a devotional on Habakkuk 2.20 and then our Provost, Christel Wood, led us through the meeting.  We discussed administrative and curriculum issues, communications, school calendar, on-line tools, remedial classes, student motivation and spent some time praying for the faculty, staff and students. We have a small, but very dedicated faculty. We do have some critical personnel needs for our faculty (See here) but I am confident that this group will be doing a great job of serving our students’ needs here at PIU.
