New Faculty Orientation

The Office of Faculty Excellence, in partnership with the Provost's Office, hosts New Faculty Orientation to welcome new faculty and create a positive and productive transition to UNF. We are so proud of our students, faculty, and staff and can’t wait for you to meet everyone.

New Faculty Orientation activities for 2024 will be held during the week of Monday, August 5 to Friday, August 9, 2024. As we approach the 2024-25 academic year, we will update this page with a schedule of events, links to register for the events, and other important information (e.g., parking).  

We realize many of you are returning UNF faculty and may not need the full program, so please register for the events that would be most beneficial for you. Please contact the Office for Faculty Excellence at if you have questions.

Full-Time Faculty

New Faculty Orientation sessions will be for all new full-time faculty including tenure-track, clinical, instructors, librarians, and lecturers hired since January 2024. Once the schedule is available, please register for the events so we can properly plan for your attendance.
