Pre-Semester Calendar

Each August, faculty participate in a variety of workshops and meetings to share strategies to support innovative and effective teaching and learning, recognize faculty for their accomplishments and service, learn about university initiatives and priorities, become familiar with university policies and processes, and more. First year faculty participate in the Pre-Semester Calendar beginning Monday, August 2, 2021. Returning faculty report two weeks prior to the first day of classes. The first day of the Fall semester is Monday, August 23, 2021, and the Pre-Semester Calendar for returning full-time faculty begins on Monday, August 9, 2021.

This year, Academic Affairs sent out a conference-style Call for Proposals and solicited dozens of excellent session ideas from faculty and staff across the university. Click the link below to see the 2021 schedule.

Pre-Semester Calendar 2021

Updated July 30, 2021

We are excited to roll out the Pre-Semester Calendar in app form this year. Using Sched, an online and mobile application, you can build your own custom schedule, network with colleagues, provide invaluable feedback for session presenters, and receive important updates from us. You can access the event using Sched online, or download the mobile app for iPhone or Android devices—search "Sched" in the App Store or in Google Play. Once you have accessed the application, type "APSU Pre-Semester Calendar" in the search bar. Use the password "PSC2021" to access the event and begin building your Sched.

If you would prefer to not use the app, either online or on your mobile device, you can find the complete details for each session in this document.
