Resource Guide for New Faculty

Welcome to the University of Kansas!

This online orientation is intended to introduce new KU faculty and staff to a number of services and benefits.

New Employee Packet

Several forms will require completion on or before your start date in order for your employment to begin and for you to receive your first paycheck. See additional information for international employees and scholars.

If you need additional assistance, the Faculty Development Office is committed to helping faculty be successful at KU. We offer a number of programs that support faculty and can also answer questions about policies that guide faculty processes. You may also contact Human Resource Management (HRM), responsible for providing a comprehensive range of services that improve the lives of those who work, learn, and visit the University of Kansas.
