New Faculty Orientation: August 16, 2019

August 6, 2019


FROM: Jodi D. Gentry, Vice President for UF Human Resources

SUBJECT: New Faculty Orientation August 16, 2019

To welcome new faculty to the University of Florida and provide information about available resources and services, UF Human Resources will host this year’s New Faculty Orientation on Friday, August 16.

This year, we have invited close to 600 new faculty to attend New Faculty Orientation, making this our largest-ever group of incoming faculty, thanks—in large part—to the University of Florida’s Faculty 500 hiring initiative. In order to accommodate the increased number of new faculty expected to attend, the event will be held at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center’s Exactech Arena.

New faculty have been contacted directly with an invitation to register online for the event here: https://hr.ufl.edu/working-at-uf/current-employees/nfo/.

Departments are encouraged to access UFHR’s onboarding resources at https://hr.ufl.edu/manager-resources/recruitment-staffing/hiring-center/best-onboarding-practices-for-leaders/onboarding-101-toolkit/ for faculty and to encourage new faculty to visit our online Welcome Center at https://welcome.hr.ufl.edu/.

Thank you for your support and assistance in welcoming our new faculty to the University of Florida.
