New Year. New Faculty. (New Contest!)

Summer break is great, but so is the excitement of starting a new academic year: refreshed faculty sharing summer stories; first-time freshman wandering campus trying to find a classroom; returning students chatting with familiar faces; and, of course, brand new faculty overwhelmed by heaping spoonfuls of information coming at them from every direction. Indeed, it is a new academic year!

I will admit, I am one of the people serving up tons of info to the 22 (yes, 22!) new GCC Residential Faculty, but that is part of my job as Faculty Developer and PAR Facilitator. What this position also means is I have already started getting to know these 22 fabulous people.

With that said, I challenge you all to do the same–get to know our new faculty. I will get you started with their names and departments; you do the rest! How many can you meet? 8? 13? All 22?! I see a prize in the future for the person who meets all 22! Proof? A selfie with the newbie will suffice. Email pics to The contest will be ongoing until we have a winner!

Fabulous New Faculty–Be the first to find them all and snap a selfie to win!
