Walkway of UNLV

New Faculty Orientation

As part of the university’s welcoming and onboarding of new faculty, the Office of Faculty Affairs provides resources for New Faculty Orientation. The content is designed to introduce you to important information and resources as you begin your career at UNLV.

Every August, the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs hosts a New Faculty Orientation event to welcome new academic and administrative faculty who have joined UNLV during the past year. Traditionally, the event has consisted of an in-person orientation that included brief talks from various Campus administrators, as well as a resource fair. Because of the constraints placed on us by the current pandemic, this year we are conducting the New Faculty Orientation differently, but the event holds the same purpose.

Please view the New Faculty Onboarding page for essential information, including a greeting from the Provost.

First Year Faculty Cohorts

The First Year Faculty Cohort (FYFC) program is designed to give new academic faculty more substantial support as they join the UNLV community and begin their career development at UNLV. This is a new program that will evolve to meet the needs of new faculty as we adjust to the current realities of remote work and instruction and the world that is to come.

To learn more about the program and to enroll, please visit the First Year Faculty Cohort page.

Later in the Fall

Other activities to help welcome you to UNLV are being planned for later in the Fall semester including virtual panels on the Student Experience, the Office of Research & Economic Development, and Tenure and Promotion. Please expect more information as it becomes available. In the meantime, please visit the Faculty Center website for other faculty development activities.
