Here at Wayne State University, we understand that faculty are the lifeblood of the university. In order to help you acclimate to your new position, we offer a comprehensive, two-day orientation for new faculty. For 2017, plan to join us August 17th and 18th as we cover tenure and promotion standards, demonstrate available resources for research and provide opportunities to meet colleagues from across the campus. You will also have the ability to talk to representatives from Human Resources and fill out any paperwork necessary to receive benefits.
After meeting on campus, we will begin our orientation with a welcoming reception hosted by the President. We end our orientation with a networking reception that allows you to meet other junior faculty and learn what they wish they had known when they started at Wayne State. Throughout the two days, we encourage you to meet other new faculty, identify people and services to ensure a seamless first year and ask any questions you may have. Explore our website and if you have any unanswered questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And again, welcome to Wayne State!
