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 welcomenewfaculty@umass.edu.

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.
