Do you remember when you were a newcomer? Do youremember the support that you received—or didn’t receive? Are yourmemories pleasant or painful—or a mixture of the two?

Now let’s focus on the present: How do you nowsupport your new colleagues? How do you currently contribute to creating asupportive environment in your department? Check the spaces next to the itemsthat you personally have undertaken for new faculty during the past 12 months:

  • ___ I contacted new hires before they moved to the area to introduce myself.
  • ___ I contacted new hires before they moved to the area to offer help with relocating, moving, and getting settled.
  • ___ I asked about their professional interests (teaching, scholarship, and service).
  • ___ I asked about their personal interests (family, hobbies, etc.).
  • ___ I asked about the adequacy of their office space, equipment, technical support, etc.
  • ___ I introduced them to others on campus.
  • ___ I invited them for coffee, tea, or lunch.
  • ___ I invited them to my home.
  • ___ I provided information about campus resources (teaching and learning center, media services, computing services, counseling services, health promotion, etc.).
  • ___ I provided information about community resources (recreation, farmer’s market, school system, day care, senior center, etc.).
  • ___ I invited them to campus and community cultural events (gallery openings, theatrical performances, musical recitals, etc.).
  • ___ I inquired about their professional goals for teaching, scholarship, and service and gave them feedback on their plans.
  • ___ I discussed my teaching with them.
  • ___ I shared my syllabi and other course materials.
  • ___ I invited a new faculty member to my classes as a guest speaker.
  • ___ I invited a new faculty member to my classes as an observer to give me feedback on my teaching.
  • ___ I offered to observe their classes and give feedback.
  • ___ I offered to team teach with new faculty.
  • ___ I offered to collaborate on disciplinary and/or classroom research.
  • ___ I invited them to co-present at a professional conference.
  • ___ I offered to review a new faculty member’s manuscript for publication.
  • ___ I discussed reappointment, promotion, and/or tenure policy and procedures with them.
  • ___ I offered to review and give feedback about their reappointment, promotion, and/or tenure materials.
  • ___ I offered to include them on grant proposals.
  • ___ I informed them about learning opportunities on and off-campus.
  • ___ I offered to mentor new faculty.
  • ___ I ensured that they had input in curricular discussions and decisions.
  • ___ I supported new ideas that they brought to the department/college.

Give yourself one point for each space checked.Give yourself 10 extra points if you did any of the above for part-timefaculty. Subtract 5 points if you are a chair or other campus administrator;this is already your job. Or subtract 5 points if you are not a chair or othercampus administrator, and you think it’s their job!

If you scored 20+, you are a great friend to newfaculty. If you scored 10 points or less, you probably can do more to help yournew colleagues, both full-time and part-time.
