First-Year Faculty Program
The First-Year Faculty Program supports the professional success of tenure-track, first-year faculty at Austin Peay State University. Program participants will develop an in-depth understanding of retention, tenure, and promotion criteria through an exploration of teaching, creative or scholarly achievement, service, and advising in predominantly active-learning environments with extensive peer interactions for cohort cohesion and community building. To acquire the necessary time to fully engage and benefit from this program, participating faculty will receive a 3-credit-hour course release during the fall semester and a 3-credit-hour course release during the spring semester.
- Attend weekly program workshops from 3-4:30 p.m. on Mondays during the fall and spring semesters.
