2020 New Faculty Orientation

Welcome to EKU and congratulations on your recent appointment!  Below you will find information about our New Faculty Orientation (NFO) that will help to ensure your successful transition to EKU.


The four-day NFO serves several purposes that promote faculty success. NFO provides new faculty members with information about policies, procedures, and teaching that will impact your work in the classroom and beyond. In addition, NFO offers new faculty opportunities to connect with EKU colleagues, campus leaders, and staff while also providing an overview of the many professional and faculty development resources and opportunities available throughout the year. 

Mid-year faculty hires (those beginning their appointment in January) should plan to attend NFO the following August. 

2020 NFO

Dates: August 4-7, 2020 and New Faculty Seminar on the first Friday of each month (12:00-1:30pm)

We are monitoring COVID-19 closely and will coordinate directly with new faculty regarding delivery of content.
