Welcome to UCF and congratulations on your recent appointment.  Below you will find information about two required orientations that will help to ensure your successful transition into your new role.

The New Faculty Academic Orientation

The two-day Academic Orientation serves several purposes related to promoting faculty success.  It provides new faculty members with information about policies and procedures that will directly impact their work in and beyond the classroom, offers participants opportunities to connect with new colleagues and campus leaders, and presents attendees with a preview of the many kinds of professional development resources and opportunities available to them throughout the year.  The event takes place in the Student Union and Classroom 1 buildings on the Orlando Campus and includes complimentary breakfast and lunch events on both days. 

The Human Resources Benefits and Payroll Orientation for New Faculty

HR Orientation provides you with information about business issues related to your employment, including direct deposit and a variety of benefits. You may elect to complete the orientation in mixed mode or fully online. Click here to find more information and to access required forms.
