Welcome to Eastern
Illinois University. The Faculty Development Office is here to provide help
during this time of transition and support throughout your academic career here
at EIU. To this end, we invite you to attend the New Faculty Orientation on
Wednesday, August 15, 2012. As you can see from the schedule, this day has been designed to assist you in becoming
more familiar with Eastern as an institution and to introduce you to the
community, as well as resources for teaching and research, and opportunities for
service. The day will conclude with a reception hosted by the University
Professionals of Illinois.
While the New Faculty Orientation will provide
much information and assistance, we urge you to contact our Human Resources
office immediately and complete the necessary paperwork for your employment as
soon as possible.
In the meantime, we welcome your questions and
encourage you to call us at at 217-581-7051 or to come by the Faculty
Development office in 1116 Booth Library. Krishna Thomas (Assistant Director),
Wanda Kay Robinson (Administrative Aide) and I wish to help in any way possible
and look forward to meeting you.
