New Faculty Orientation is a two-day program focusing on teaching and scholarship within the context of a Christian university. You will meet other Baylor family members - fellow newcomers, professors, administrators, and staff - while learning more about what makes Baylor a great college to work for.
The program is is held the Monday and Tuesday of the week prior to the start of the semester and you will receive an email from the Provost's Office with details and logistical information. Both days of the orientation include breakfast and lunch. Academic and campus leaders also attend the lunches, providing you a great opportunity to network and initiate cross-departmental relationships with colleagues. Additionally, the Provost hosts a dinner for all new faculty during orientation. Upon arrival, you will receive a packet of information including resources across campus, a course catalog, and a notebook.
You can read more about New Faculty Orientation on the Executive Vice President and Provost website.
