Required Pre-Orientation | New Faculty Orientation

Before arriving on campus, it is important that all new CMU faculty complete the required Pre-Orientation training and also enter their curriculum vitae into the Online Faculty Information System (OFIS). The first step, the online Pre-Orientation portion of New Faculty Orientation, will: 
  • Provide you with important information you will need to know before coming to campus,
  • Inform you of how to obtain your CMU Global ID and email address, and 
  • Introduce you to services and resources that many faculty find helpful during their first few weeks on campus. 
The remaining component, entering your curriculum vitae into the Online Faculty Information System (OFIS) is also required. New faculty should complete both of these steps of the pre-orientation BEFORE attending the campus orientation.   

Step 1: Complete the required online Pre-Orientation

This component will take about 20 minutes to complete. ‚Äč 

Step 2: Enter your curriculum vitae (CV) into the Online Faculty Information System (OFIS)

OFIS is a secured database populated with useful CMU faculty data. Using information entered from your curriculum vitae (CV), OFIS is able to generate detailed reports useful for many purposes including internal and external grant applications, annual reports for submission to your college dean, and vitae in a variety of formats. Once you've obtained your Global I.D. and password, go to the OFIS page to begin uploading your CV to OFIS
