New Faculty Orientation 2019-2020

To help orient you to campus and your new role, we offer several events during the first part of the academic year. New Faculty Orientation is held annually in September. The "anchor" event is our fall New Faculty Orientation, held this year on Thursday September 19, 10:00am–5:00pm. NFO is a day fullNFO table of the key information you need to get started at Western and the resources we provide to help you thrive on our campus. NFO is followed by a reception with our Provost, Brent Carvajal, and our President, Sabah Randhawa. Subsequent events acquaint you with additional development resources and with opportunities to become acquainted with our campus, community and region. Look for an email invitation from WWU Special Events in mid-August with important event details and online registration link.
