FacultyConnect: New Faculty Orientation - Overview

Welcome, newest faculty colleagues, to the University of North Texas! We are pleased that you have joined our faculty, and we invite you to attend the New Faculty Orientation, held each August. The event, sponsored by the Office for Faculty Success, provides new full-time faculty with the necessary tools and academic information for a smooth transition into the university. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.

What topics are covered at orientation? The two-day orientation introduces new full-time faculty to the UNT leadership team, helps familiarize new faculty with campus resources, provides an overview of employee benefits programs, and presents tips for a successful first semester and career at UNT.

How do I enroll for benefits, purchase parking permits, process the I-9 form, and enroll for direct deposit? Soon after accepting the offer of employment, new faculty will receive an email from the Office of the Provost, which provides specific directions for processing your I9 form, enrolling in direct deposit, selecting benefit and retirement options, purchasing your parking permit, and more. 

I couldn't attend the scheduled New Faculty Orientation. What should I do? We strongly encourage individuals who cannot attend New Faculty Orientation to make an appointment to visit with the Vice Provost for Faculty, please contact Faculty Success at 940.565.3987 or email Faculty.Success@unt.edu. In addition, attending the next New Faculty Orientation is a good idea.

What if I have questions? If you have questions about New Faculty Orientation, please contact Faculty Success at 940.565.3987 or email Faculty.Success@unt.edu.

Again, welcome! We look forward to meeting you. Congratulations on your wise decision to join our faculty and build your career at UNT.
