New Faculty Orientation

ProfessorEach summer, two special faculty orientation sessions are held for new faculty hires beginning on July 1 and August 1.  Spend the day with us in New Faculty Orientation and discover all the reasons why a position with the University of Louisville is more than just a paycheck!

During the full-day session, you will complete employment documents, sign up for payroll and benefits, obtain identification cards, parking permits, and receive information about university policies and procedures.  The orientation will also acquaint you with teaching, research, and library resources at the university, as well as critical information about promotion, tenure, and faculty governance.
