Provost's Welcome to New Faculty

Aug. 1, 2019

I am pleased to welcome you to UNLV!

You are now among more than 3,900 faculty and staff entrusted with guiding some 31,000 students to success at UNLV. You were recruited for your demonstrated strengths and achievements and your potential to contribute to student success and campus culture.

We are proud to have you join our faculty community, a distinctive group of scholars and educators deeply committed to academic excellence.

At UNLV, we strive to uphold the highest standards of academic achievement. We recognize that maintaining those standards depends on the success of our faculty and staff in teaching, research, and service. New faculty orientation not only prepares you for success at UNLV but also provides you with mentoring and networking opportunities across campus.

Please join our New Faculty Orientation, scheduled from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on August 19, 2019, in the Tam Alumni Grand Hall. (There will be a second day of sessions for academic faculty only on August 20th in the same location.)

Our goal is to orient you to UNLV’s mission and introduce you to information and resources designed to help you get to know UNLV and the city of Las Vegas. Please take a few minutes to explore our website and the new faculty orientation page for steps you should take prior to the orientation.

We are glad you are now part of our campus community.

Chris Heavey, Ph.D.
Interim Executive Vice President and Provost
