Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to Rochester Institute of Technology and New Faculty Orientation (NFO)! You are joining a wonderful community of outstanding and accomplished faculty. Your arrival will continue to strengthen our departments and colleges, and contribute to continuing and new initiatives—this is an exciting time to be joining RIT’s community! And, NFO is just one of the many ways that RIT invests in the success of its faculty at all stages of their career.

The Faculty Career Development Services (FCDS) team has coordinated an exciting NFO for you that will help you “hit the ground running.”  NFO will introduce you to information, resources, and support areas that are critical for your success.  NFO will be offered Wednesday, August 13, Thursday, August 14, and Friday, August 15.  To register for NFO 2014, click on the REGISTER button to the right. FCDS has designed additional programming offered throughout the academic year that will provide you with opportunities to network with your new colleagues—including the “Power Reception” for new faculty on September 19, our Faculty Success Series throughout the year, and an exciting Destination Intersession in January. Watch your email for details.

As you continue to develop in your roles as educators and scholars, I expect this year to be filled with discovery, achievements, collegiality, fulfillment, and hopefully some fun!
