New Faculty Orientation
UIC welcomes all new faculty to participate in the variety of campus-based and unit-based orientation events. Participation in all events is actively encouraged. There are two types of orientation for new faculty. The first is offered by UIC Human Resources (UIC HR), covering issues related to employment, compensation, and benefits. The second is offered through the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, covering academic issues. Attendance is expected at both.
For further information about the orientation offered by UIC HR, please see the New Employee Orientation section on their website. The new employee orientation program acquaints employees with general campus policies related to their employment, safety and security information, benefits information, and the UIC websites as resources for obtaining information and performing employment transactions.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs holds a Campus New Faculty Orientation every fall to welcome new faculty to UIC. Included in the agenda are keynote speakers addressing teaching, service and research at UIC.
