Where do I go on my first day? 

Before your first day, the Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) will advise you of where to meet for faculty orientation. Orientation is provided by the Office of Academic Affairs and Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). CETL will support new faculty for mentoring. You will receive a parking tag on or before your first day. 

When do I get paid? 

Faculty will be paid monthly (12 paychecks per year) on the last working day of each month. For faculty starting in the fall, your first paycheck will be on the last business day of July. 

Where can I find more procedures & policies? 

New faculty will be provided with a New Faculty Survival Guide, upon starting. 

You can access the Faculty handbook via a Google Doc accessed with your Doane email address. You can also access the Employee Handbook online. If you are not able to find what you were looking for or need further clarification, contact Academic Affairs or Human Resources. 

What if I have more questions?
