New Faculty Orientation

The campus-wide New Faculty Orientation (NFO) is for new tenure-system faculty members and full-time (100%) lecturers/instructors. It is co-sponsored by the Provost’s Office and TEFD.

NFO will introduce you to UMass and various campus resources that are intended to support your teaching, research, and life-work balance.

Date:  Monday, August 28, 2017
Time:  9:00 AM to 3:30 PM
Location:  Campus Center (room to be announced)

We will send you an invitation with additional information in early July. If you have any questions, please contact us at

In addition to the campus-wide orientation, many departments and some schools/colleges sponsor orientation events for their new faculty. Ask your department chair or departmental administrator if such programming exists.
