First Month Milestones

The Chair should be responsible for orienting the new faculty. However, the Chair and the Administrative Professional may need to work together to complete all of the orienting tasks that need to be completed to help acclimate the new faculty and ensure successful integration into the UF community.

Check-In with Faculty:

  • Ask what is working well and not well?
  • Ask how meetings with department members and other colleagues are going?
  • Complete department tour
  • Ask about acclimation to the Gainesville community.
  • Check on progress of benefits
  • Go over Faculty Mentoring Handbook and the tenure and promotion process
