Orientation programs, held during the week before classes begin, serve as an introduction to the university for new tenure-line faculty and new term faculty. Both programs include an overview of the university and American University students, information on teaching and resources to help you get off to a successful start, and topics such as how to maintain wellness and work-life balance. The orientations are the first part of a year-long Entrée program for new faculty.

We are delighted to provide you with a complete on-line guide to your first year at AU. Follow this link to our New Faculty Guide.
