Orientations

As new faculty, academic staff, and administrators arrive on campus each year, the AAN provides orientation sessions and materials to help them learn how to navigate the university community. During these sessions, participants have the opportunity to meet members of their peer cohorts, the individuals with whom they will be learning and collaborating as they transition into their new roles. They also have a chance to interact with the leaders of many campus programs and offices who can provide perspective on how those separate aspects of MSU combine to further the university’s mission.

New Faculty and Academic Staff Orientation

Held each August, this is an opportunity for faculty and academic staff to become acquainted with people and policies that will be important to them at Michigan State University. Orientation is required for all new full-time academics on the East Lansing campus that are contracted for 90% time or greater for two or more semesters, including tenure system faculty, fixed-term faculty, librarians, health programs faculty, academic specialists in the continuing system, and fixed-term academic specialists.  Others who are in these roles at reduced appointment levels are invited, but not required, to attend.

New Administrator Orientation

For administrators new to MSU or new to their roles, we offer a three-day mandatory orientation in early August each year.
