You are invited to New Faculty Orientation Tuesday, August 20, 2013
At Orientation: The Office of the Provost invites all new, full-time faculty to participate in interactive sessions focusing on our wonderfully diverse student community and the various resources that support research and teaching at UH.
All events will ensure ample opportunity for questions to be posed and answered amidst an atmosphere of celebration. You are joining a collection of dedicated faculty colleagues committed to reinforcing UH's position as a premier research university.
Opportunities will be provided for meeting campus leadership and networking with colleagues from many programs, departments, schools and colleges. There will also be a resource fair featuring representatives from various UH services providing materials and guidance for settling into your new home at UH.
