Welcome new colleagues! The Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Academic Affairs are your hosts for New Faculty Orientation. Prior to each Fall and Spring term, we offer an orientation program for full-time and adjunct faculty who are joining the faculty in the upcoming semester. This is a great opportunity for you to meet other new faculty, as well as learn about relevant policies, procedures, and programs to support your teaching, research and service at Marshall.

We’ve also developed a special page, New Faculty Resources, to help you get settled on campus and in the community. On this page, you will find an Arriving Faculty Flowchart to guide you through necessary steps to get started as a new Marshall employee, including links to HR forms and how to obtain your University ID, parking permit, and computer account. You will also find quick reference links for University resources including personnel, academic, and campus information, as well as links to community information.

Please let us know how we can help you during your transition. We look forward to seeing you soon!
