New Faculty

Welcome New Faculty! We are pleased that you have chosen KSU and look forward to working with you. This page will connect you with resources and groups on campus that will help you get off to a successful start. 


New Faculty Orientation

New Faculty Orientation (NFO) is hosted by the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning each August and is open to all new full and part-time faculty, as well as faculty that have changed their role at KSU. 

The goals for NFO are to:

    1. Help new faculty develop an understanding of KSU’s mission and culture.
    2. Provide new faculty with an overview of available resources that can help achieve professional goals.
    3. Provide an opportunity for new faculty to complete essential onboarding activities in one place.
    4. Facilitate connections with faculty and staff across both campuses.
    5. Lay the groundwork for an energizing, productive, and successful career at KSU.

2021 New Faculty Orientation information can be found here.

HR Onboarding Requirements

In addition to New Faculty Orientation, new faculty need to complete the New Employee Onboarding process facilitated by Human Resources. Contact HR by phone: 470-578-6030 or email: with questions about this process.
