Welcome New Faculty! We are pleased that you have chosen KSU and look forward to supporting you throughout your career. This page will connect you with resources and groups on campus that will help you get off to a successful start whether it's your first semester in a new position or your first semester at the university.
Make sure you stay up to date as details about the 2022 New Faculty Orientation are announced. Provide your summer contact information here.
New Faculty Orientation (NFO) is hosted by the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning for all new full and part-time faculty, as well as faculty that have changed their role at KSU.
The goals for NFO are to:
- Help new faculty develop an understanding of KSU’s mission and culture.
- Provide new faculty with an overview of available resources that can help achieve professional goals.
- Provide an opportunity for new faculty to complete essential onboarding activities in one place.
- Facilitate connections with faculty and staff across both campuses.
- Lay the groundwork for an energizing, productive, and successful career at KSU.
HR Onboarding Requirements
In addition to New Faculty Orientation, new faculty need to complete the New Employee Onboarding process facilitated by Human Resources for all new employees. Contact HR by phone: 470-578-6030 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about this process.
