EIU Faculty Development and Innovation Center

New Faculty Orientation, Eastern Illinois University

Each year, we offer a New Faculty Orientation (NFO) at the beginning of the Fall semester. This year, the NFO will be Wednesday, August 19, 2020, 8:00–3:00, in Booth Library. If you are new to Eastern Illinois University, joined in Spring, Summer, or Fall 2020, are moving from an adjunct to a Unit B position, or from a Unit B to Unit A position, we would invite you to join us for information and activities that will help you succeed during the academic year and beyond. As soon as  you know you will be joining us, please register @ our Gosignmeup registration page (you need not have your Panther/EIU ID to do so). We will send you a welcome sheet, and (once you have your Panther EIU ID) access to NFO materials and activities on the FDIC Brightspace (D2L) course.
