Resources for New Faculty

Welcome to UNC Charlotte!!

These web pages were created especially for our new faculty members.   You will find links and information pertinent to teaching and research, as well as links to familiarize you with the policies and services available at UNC Charlotte.

Don't forget to scroll down the menu on the left hand side of the page under Resources for New Faculty to find even more useful resources!

In particular, please click on Before You Arrive on Campus, which explains everything you are required to complete BEFORE you arrive on campus, and also The Provost's 2022 New Faculty Orientation, which New Faculty are REQUIRED to attend. Information about the Orientation, and programming specifically developed for New Faculty for the rest of your first week can be found here.

For your convenience, a copy of the (very long!) email you received in July from the Provost and Dr. Huet welcoming you to UNC Charlotte can be found by clicking on the links below:
