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:

  • 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.
