New Faculty Orientation 2020


Welcome to KU!

Please save the date, Monday, August 17, 2020, for New Faculty Orientation.

We are so pleased that you are joining the faculty at the University of Kansas! Things are a little different this year, and we are here to help as you get started.

This will be a full-day virtual event from 9a.m. to 6p.m. (with plenty of breaks as well as a few fun, but optional, sessions). You’ll have an opportunity to hear from the Chancellor, Provost, Vice Provost for Diversity & Equity, and the Faculty Senate President; learn more about KU’s students; and most importantly have a chance to connect with each other.

To help us get ready, please complete this brief survey so we can learn more about you & what you’re thinking about as you join the KU community. And watch for a fun surprise from us to be delivered by USPS to your doorstop the week before Orientation!
