New LVAIC Faculty Meet and Mingle at Moravian

October 1, 2017, @ 8:00 AM

New faculty from LVAIC campuses gather to network over refreshments at Moravian College on September 26, 2017.

On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, over 40 new faculty from Cedar Crest College, DeSales University, Lafayette College, Lehigh University, Moravian College, and Muhlenberg College gathered with their presidents and provosts to network and learn more about opportunities with the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges.

This is the third of a series of cocktail networking receptions that LVAIC holds each semester. The goals of these receptions are:

  1. To offer new faculty members and their families an opportunity to connect with each other and the Lehigh Valley community;
  2. To cultivate new faculty engagement in the intellectual community of our consortium through both informal networks and formal collaborative structures; and
  3. To increase the overall retention of new faculty across member institutions by creating these collegian and community connections within the first 2 years of hire.

The attendance at this event has increased by over 200% since the initial event and continues to grow as each campus expands the number of faculty

it employs. LVAIC is looking forward to the next New Faculty Cocktail Reception in Spring 2018. Please continue to check the LVAIC website for updates or contact your provost’s office for more information.
