New Faculty Orientation

Welcome to Ball State University!  We are pleased that you are joining our team. To assist as you begin your work at Ball State, we have planned activities that are critical to a smooth transition to your new responsibilities.

We ask that you join us in *mid August for a program regarding your legal issues and compliance, along with other topics beneficial to the success of your first year at Ball State University.  We will  introduce you to the faculty roles, responsibilities, and opportunities at Ball State. The Ball State Fact Book and the Faculty and Professional Personnel Handbook will be essential tools to help you learn more about the University.  The Alpha Luncheon will be held on this day at noon.

The following day will include sessions regarding benefits.  During the program, you will be able to fill out payroll forms so you can be paid in August.

Other activities scheduled include workshops provided by our Office of Educational Excellence. During this time, you will be directed to information about i>clicker2 (student response system), Blackboard (learning management system), the Ball State QuickClinic and other important places on campus.

Beginning *early August you may pick up your new faculty orientation packet in your department office.  Use the links to the right to find other forms and information you need.

*Specific Dates will be provided as soon as they are confirmed each year.
