Check back frequently over the next 2 months for updated content.

The New Faculty Welcome program is an annual event offered by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost with contributions from other university units that support faculty at Virginia Tech.

This half-day 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 live, interactive portion of this year’s event will be held on August 21, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

The program provides breakout informational sessions for Administrative and Professional Faculty and Teaching and Research Faculty. This targeted program content is designed to address the specific needs and interests of the different faculty groups.

All new faculty members hired between August 10, 2019 through August 10, 2020 are invited and strongly encouraged to attend this important program. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required to build networking and breakout session zoom sessions.

Please find informational videos and other resources linked below. Please continue to check this page frequently before and even after the event on August 21 as we will be updating it with videos and resources as we receive them.

Please email Leslie Sullivan with any questions.
