On Friday, August 13th President ad interim Teik C. Lim will kick-off the event with a welcome. Monday, August 23rd, Orientation Part II will begin with a welcome from Provost ad interim Pranesh Aswath. All faculty are welcome to attend both days as each will offer different information

Part I: Friday, August 13th from 9-5 pm, will be held virtually through Microsoft Teams

Part II: Monday, August 23rd from 8:00-4 pm, will be held in person at the Bluebonnet Ballroom.


Part I involves training on Canvas, Civitas, Digital Measures, Student Feedback Survey system and other electronic tools.  

Part II will involve key information for new hires, including P&T information for tenure-stream faculty involving the Provost, the Office of the VP for Research and other campus leadership, as well as sessions on effective teaching.
