Beginning this fall term, CECS students will work and learn alongside nine new faculty members who joined the College on August 1. In response to enrollment growth and the College’s commitment to teaching and applied research,  new faculty positions will enhance student learning experience and faculty expertise. The faces of some of the nine folks are familiar, while others will be new to our students.  Earlier this month the new faculty participated in a number of orientation activities, including the new CECS faculty orientation.
