NEW FACULTY ORIENTATION
The 2021 New Faculty Orientation will be conducted in person on August 11 and 12, 2022. The sessions are broken into two half-days allowing new faculty time to meet with their departments and become acquainted with campus. During the sessions, faculty will be introduced to UHD's mission and vision, its student body, student support and success resources, research and grant opportunities, pedagogical best practices, policy and procedure , and campus-wide DEI initiatives. We encourage you to use these days to meet with your chair and dean and will identify time in the schedule that is forthcoming. We will also host a reception on the evening of the 12th.
Prior to New Faculty Orientation please review and follow the New Faculty Checklist (with updates coming soon).
We will soon post a registration link here and notify all new faculty to sign up!
