Upcoming New Faculty Orientation

New Faculty Foundations: discover, connect, thrive

Each semester we host a formal orientation program for all newly hired tenure-track and lecturer faculty as part of our New Faculty Foundations programming. Our vision is that newly hired faculty who attend orientation will embrace the first day on the job with:

  1. The most critical information to effectively navigate the first weeks at CSUN;
  2. Clarity about resources and campus efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion;
  3. Authentic connections and relationships with students, faculty, leaders, staff and essential campus partners;
  4. Increased confidence & wellbeing to kickstart your role as a CSUN faculty member;
  5. Affirmation of the multiple identities of our community in order to result with faculty belonging.

 Orientation: Wednesday August 24th & Thursday August 25th, 2022
