New Faculty Orientation

Welcome to NSU. Let's Get Started.

Welcome to Northeastern State University. We're excited to get to know and work with you. We understand that starting with a new institution is a busy time, so we're holding a New Faculty Orientation on Monday, August 8, 2022, to help you become familiar with resources at NSU.

NFO is an opportunity for you to:

  • Learn about and connect with resources that will help you be successful in your new roles at a new institution.
  • Discover processes and systems you'll use while working at NSU.
  • Meet key members of the NSU community.

Please join us for a day of workshops and making connections as you begin your story with NSU.
