Welcome New Faculty

About this Orientation

This orientation is designed to help you get started teaching at Chemeketa. On the Welcome page, you’ll be able to get a bird’s eye view of Chemeketa’s organization, locations, and services. The Getting Started page will guide through setting up your college accounts, navigating important portals, and completing mandatory training required of all Chemeketa employees . You’ll be introduced to the processes, procedures, and expectations for administering your courses as well as helpful guidance related to accessing key College communications, including those from Human Resources related to employment.

The Teaching & Learning page will introduce you to our teaching and learning values and encourage you to reflect on how you might realize these in your own classroom. Further, you’ll find specific strategy descriptions that put those values into practice. The page includes guidance on enhancing academic integrity with your students. It links to the faculty support resources available including opportunities for professional development.

Lastly, the Student Success Resources page describes resources for your students to help them achieve and reach their educational goals. Learn about them so that you can make referrals and connections.
