Faculty Orientation

All new faculty members participate in the annual New Faculty Orientation (NFO) events in August. Information related to payroll and benefits enrollment for new faculty (or changes for returning) is included in the August Orientation materials mailed to faculty.

Faculty members hired after the annual Faculty Orientation in August participate in the next New Employee Orientation after starting work in order to complete payroll and benefits election, and to begin introduction to the University community. They are also invited to participate in the NFO events the following August.

We encourage you to visit EKU New Faculty Orientation web site for information about EKU and your faculty employment.  We welcome you to browse these New Employee Orientation pages to learn about the EKU Community.

Employment & Payroll Election

New faculty should visit Human Resources (HR) Office in Jones Building Room 203 any time prior to the August NFO - where HR staff will assist in completing employment and payroll paperwork.

The following documents/information will be necessary at that time:

  • Original documents for completion of I-9 form
  • Original Social Security Card
  • Social Security Numbers, birth dates and addresses for dependents
  • Vehicle information (make, model, plate number) for Parking Services Employee permit
  • Voided check for enrollment in direct deposit of your paycheck

Faculty not visiting Richmond Campus prior to the August NFO may complete this process during the HR Day during Orientation.

Benefits Election

HR Benefits Office staff will be available to enroll new full-time faculty into a health plan, a retirement plan and any of the other optional benefits plans on the HR Day during New Faculty Orientation.
