We are excited to invite new faculty to this year’s New Faculty Orientation. Our aim is for new faculty to feel warmly welcomed, get to know their new university better, and leave with connections to new colleagues.

We’ve planned two days of engaging sessions for Monday and Tuesday, August 19-20, 2019. Please see last year’s agenda below. More information will be posted regarding this year’s New Faculty Orientation as the event gets closer.
