PREPPING FOR THE SEMESTER

Once all paperwork has been processed and you've been added into our system, you will receive an email from HR titled "Welcome to Norse Nation." This email will provide your NKU username, presonnel number, and email address. With this information, you can set-up your NKU account password, and more. Details are availabe on the HR website.

As a new instructor, you will be partenered with a faculty liaison from your academic department. This liaison will provide a sample syllabus and relevant course details and resources so that you can prepare for the semester. This person will be your contact for any academic/course questions during your first year.

All SBS instructors must attend SBS Faculty Orientation and Faculty Development Training at the end of each summer. Additionally, academic departments may require new instructors to go through new hire training or professional development with the department. Details of the SBS orientation and training will be emailed at the end of the spring semester.
