New Academic Leader Orientation



New Academic Leader Orientation is for faculty members who have accepted a new appointment with a provost, dean, or department head title within the previous year. (College leaders may also request approval to send individuals with other titles as appropriate.)

By design, New Academic Leader Orientation starts with academic leaders experiencing New Faculty Orientation alongside faculty in their first year. This provides a current understanding of expectations and resources for Texas A&M University faculty. Following the content for new faculty and the opportunity to engage directly with academic divisions and university service providers, academic leaders spend the final day interacting with one another and exploring the responsibilities and rules integral to their roles.

Note: Participants from all Texas A&M locations are encouraged to attend this interactive event in person to receive maximum benefit. For those unable to attend, the slides will be posted on this page following the event. Questions can be sent to
