New Faculty Orientation

Each August, an orientation program for new University faculty is held. The program is for all new faculty (all ranks of professors, lecturers, research faculty, extension agents, visiting faculty) who have begun at the University in the past twelve months. Were you able to be there this year? Take our brief survey and let us know what you thought of the program. Click here for the survey.
