New Faculty Orientation

Welcome to Georgia State University! You are joining a community of diverse, talented, and cutting-edge scholars. We are committed to investing in our faculty and ensuring that they are successful at all stages of their career. If you are a new full-time faculty member, please mark your calendar for:

  • New Faculty Orientation, Thursday, August 17, 2017
  • Teaching Orientation sessions, Monday, August 14 and Tuesday, August 15, 2017 (you will choose the date that best fits your schedule)

Additional details about times, agendas, locations, and registration will be posted on this site in early summer.

The New Faculty Orientation is an introduction to the key resources that will enable you to provide a superb research and learning environment for your students.  New faculty will have an opportunity to meet key senior leaders of Georgia State and hear about their vision for its future. New Faculty Orientation is also a great opportunity to network with new colleagues, learn about the culture and community at Georgia State, and discover opportunities for your career development.

After the orientation, we encourage you to participate in seminars and workshops offered by the Office of Faculty Affairs throughout the academic year. Information about these workshops will be provided during the New Faculty Orientation and through our website near the beginning of the academic year.
