Faculty Orientations

New Tenure Line & New Term Faculty Orientations

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 as well as well as information on teaching and resources to help you get off to a successful start. The orientations are the first part of a year-long Entrée program for new faculty.

Adjunct Faculty Orientations

The Adjunct Faculty Orientations are held for new adjunct faculty at the beginning of each Fall and Spring semester. The orientations introduce new faculty members to the various services and support options available at AU, and allows you to complete your Human Resources paperwork, obtain parking permits, get plugged into technology and learn about services offered here at American University!
