Faculty and academic staff who are new to Michigan State University as of fall 2018 are invited for New Faculty and Academic Staff Orientation.
This 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.
