On Thursday afternoon between 1:15 and 4:45, faculty will attend various workshops around the theme “Belonging. Together.”

On Friday morning at 9 we will have our first faculty meeting of the academic year.


Pre-College Conference participation by full-time faculty is expected. Emeritus, adjunct faculty and administrative staff are welcome to participate as available or interested.

Pre-registration is required only for the events listed on the registration form. All other events are open and do not require advance registration.



We're continuing our work of updating all faculty and staff photos. These photos appear on the campus website and will remain on file for publicity needs. If you don't have a current photo, please join us to have your photo taken!

If you cannot attend pre-college conference, the photographer will also be available on August 23, 2021 in the Dow Center from 10–11 a.m.

A few tips as you plan for photos:

  • Photos are less closely cropped than in previous years. You may wish to consider longer sleeves.
  • Very pale colors tend to wash out on the soft gray background. You may wish to wear a little color to look your very best!
  • Those with transitions-type lenses in their glasses may need to allow an extra few minutes for their lenses to return to their non-darkened state.
