New Faculty Welcome

The New Faculty Welcome program is an annual event offered by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.

Following this kick-off event, other units will provide a variety of additional support activities for new faculty. This day-long event, which is separate and different from the orientation sessions provided by the Human Resources department, is designed to provide overview information about the university, give new faculty the opportunity to meet university leaders, hear from other faculty, and network with new faculty and leadership.

The program also provides breakout informational sessions for Administrative and Professional Faculty, Instructional Faculty, and Research Faculty. Additionally, there will be an afternoon session for all new international faculty members. This targeted program content is designed to address the specific needs and interests of the different faculty groups.

All new faculty members are invited and strongly encouraged to attend this important program. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. New Faculty Welcome was held on August 23, 2019; please find materials and presentations linked below. The next New Faculty Welcome event will be held on August 21, 2020 for faculty members hired between August 10, 2019 through August 10, 2020. Watch your email and the VT Daily News near the end of spring and throughout summer 2020 for registration information. It will be held in the Latham Ballroom at The Inn at Virginia Tech.
