New Faculty Onboarding

New Faculty Orientation

New Faculty Orientation (NFO) introduces you to the campus, each other, and the resources that will support your success at UMass. In addition to this campus-wide orientation, additional activities are offered by your department and school/college to learn about your ‘local’ campus community. A "Mini NFO" is held in January for faculty starting in the second semester.

HR New Employee Orientation

New Employee Orientation (NEO), sponsored by the Office of Human Resources, focuses on payroll and benefits. Contact your department's personnel coordinator who will register you for this orientation. Once you’ve been registered, Human Resources will send a confirmation including the location of the session, documentation you may need to bring with you, and where to park.
