First Year Seminar faculty are many and varied! Our team of award-winning instructors includes full-time faculty members based in an academic home department (such as psychology, biology, math, or communication), full-time faculty members who teach exclusively in First Year Seminar, full-time staff members who teach in FYS either as part of or in addition to their regular contracts, and part-time adjunct faculty who teach in FYS, sometimes along with courses in other units.
Core faculty in First Year Seminar have primary appointments teaching First Year Seminar in Appalachian's University College. All full-time Lecturers are teaching leaders who contribute substantially to the teaching, mentoring, and service activities of the unit. These award-winning faculty members are innovative in their teaching methods and deeply committed to Appalachian's first-year students.
