Just as Ball State University provides special programs to incoming freshmen, OEE recognizes the need for special resources and programs tailored to the unique needs of new faculty members (“Alphas”).

New Faculty Orientation
is a 1 1/2 day program for new faculty members at Ball State. This event will provide you with important information about resources and programs that will support your work at the university. In addition, you will learn about the various employee benefits and will complete forms for insurance, retirement benefits, taxes, etc. New Faculty Orientation 2017 begins at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, August 14th and runs through noon on Tuesday, August 15th in Cardinal Hall on the second floor of the LA Pittenger Student Center.

New Faculty Workshops

We will offer various workshops prior to the start of classes for those faculty interested in learning more about preparing to teach at Ball State. No formal reservations are required but we ask that you RSVP by calling 765-285-1763 or email.
