Before arriving on campus, it is important that all new CMU faculty complete the required Pre-Orientation session, the online Assisting Students with Disabilities (ASD) 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 two components of the pre-orientation (ASD and OFIS) are also required. New faculty should complete all three steps of the pre-orientation before attending the campus orientation.
