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 was on Wednesday, August 19, 2020. All faculty that were new to Eastern Illinois University, joined in Spring, Summer, or Fall 2020, moved from an adjunct to a Unit B position, or from a Unit B to Unit A position, were invited to attend for information and activities that will help new faculty succeed during the academic year and beyond.
