Welcome to WVU

Every August, the Teaching and Learning Commons partners with the Office of the Provost to host an orientation for new faculty. This event is organized to welcome new faculty to WVU and provide valuable information to help you get started. You will learn about resources that are available at WVU to support your teaching, scholarship, professional development, and career success. You will also have the opportunity to meet new colleagues, engage in discussions about teaching excellence, enjoy a networking breakfast with your dean, and get your professional photo taken.

This year, the event is spread out over two days in two formats; it will be held online on August 9 and in-person on August 10 at the Erickson Alumni Center.

We are currently working on the schedule and will post it as soon as it is finalized.

We look forward to seeing you in August!

Partners in Success

Several key WVU resource units will be in attendance during the Partners in Success portion of the New Faculty Orientation. We have set aside this time so you may have the opportunity to meet their representatives, ask questions, and learn more about the support they offer. The following list describes the services each unit provides. Please review it to select the units you would like to visit on Orientation days.
