Welcome to the University of Maryland! We are delighted that you are joining our campus community. We are committed to creating the best possible environment for you to conduct your scholarship, to inspire students through teaching, and to serve your discipline, our campus, and global communities.

This program is designed to welcome new and recently hired faculty members into campus culture, and provide an overview of the policies, procedures, resources and services available to you. You will hear from various members of the faculty, staff and administration, who will lead sessions and share experiences and insights to assist in your acclimation to the University. Also, there will be opportunities to network and engage with your fellow new Terps.

Visit our New Faculty Orientation website for the agenda, campus resources and information: https://faculty.umd.edu/orientation/.

Introduce Yourselves to Your New Colleagues
Ahead of meeting your new colleagues, we are asking you to introduce yourself with an Adobe Express post that we will display. We will show these posts during Orientation and may also include them on our website and in other communications. Please complete your post by August 12. Learn how to create your post

As you prepare for faculty orientation, we want to ask you to please enroll in and complete the TerrapinSTRONG onboarding. All new benefits-eligible faculty members are required to complete the TerrapinSTRONG Onboarding, a presidential initiative that aims to make new members of our community feel welcomed to the University of Maryland, learn some of our history, understand our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and come to know our traditions. Learn more and enroll.

Please note that New Faculty Orientation includes all faculty members: tenured/tenure-track (TTK), professional track (PTK), adjunct faculty, and postdoctoral researchers/instructors. It does not include graduate students who may also serve as instructors or researchers.
