August New Faculty Orientation

Welcome to Texas Tech University! The Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center is pleased to host Texas Tech University's New Faculty Orientation. This process is designed to help you make a smooth transition into your faculty role, and there are several important components of this program.

The first components of New Faculty Orientation begin with online resources and compliance training videos. You will be receiving additional information about these resources via email.

The next opportunity will be a series of face-to-face workshops during your first week on duty. Topics of these workshops will include Employee Benefits, Getting Started with Blackboard, and Helpful Teaching Tips. Please click here to view the available workshops and to register.

On Thursday, August 19th, 2021 at the Museum of Texas Tech University, the TLPDC in conjunction with the Office of the Provost will host the face-to-face portion of New Faculty Orientation. Please note that this day is mandatory for all new faculty, including tenure and non-tenure track. This orientation represents a very important opportunity for you to become acquainted with information about the university and network with new colleagues from across campus. We look forward to seeing you there! Please click here to register.
