New Faculty Orientation
Welcome to EKU and congratulations on your recent appointment! Below you will find information about our New Faculty Orientation (NFO) that will help to ensure your successful transition to EKU.
NFO serves several purposes that promote faculty success. It provides new faculty members with information about policies, procedures, and teaching that will impact your work in the classroom and beyond. In addition, NFO offers new faculty opportunities to connect with EKU colleagues, campus leaders, and staff while also providing an overview of the many professional and faculty development resources and opportunities available throughout the year.
Mid-year faculty hires (those beginning their appointment in January or during the academic year) should plan to attend NFO the following August.
Dates: August 1-4, 2023 and New Faculty Seminar on the first Friday of each month (12:00-1:30pm)
Location: Please reference NFO schedule below for session locations
