New Faculty Orientation
Melissa Curry, Interim Vice President for Human Resources
Chris Hass, Associate Provost for Academic and Faculty Affairs
To welcome new faculty to the University of Florida and provide information about available resources and services, UF Human Resources has partnered with the Office of the Provost and the Center for Teaching Excellence to provide an online version of New Faculty Orientation hosted via Canvas and found at https://ufl.instructure.com/courses/403368.
The orientation site – which will be available to new faculty as they are hired and throughout the academic year – is organized into modules featuring videos, helpful UF information, resources, and links to classes and programs designed to help faculty navigate their first year at UF.
Beginning the week of Aug. 14, new faculty are invited to attend a series of synchronous Zoom information sessions. A schedule as well as information on preparing for arrival at UF and getting acclimated may be found at https://welcome.hr.ufl.edu/getting-started/orientation/new-faculty-orientation/.
To assist with welcoming new faculty, departments are also encouraged to access UFHR’s onboarding resources at https://hr.ufl.edu/manager-resources/recruitment-staffing/hiring-center/best-onboarding-practices-for-leaders/.
Thank you for your support and assistance in welcoming our new faculty to the University of Florida.
