New Faculty


Welcome to the University of Houston! We are delighted that you have chosen to join the Cougar community. We are excited about the experience, energy, spirit, and the particular strengths that you will bring to our teaching, research, and service activities. You will be joining faculty members that are leaders in their fields and that regularly make things happen — in the lab, in society, and around the world. In addition, UH faculty are simultaneously making things happen in every classroom, working closely with each student to open up new worlds and new possibilities.

We have planned the required New Faculty Orientation day for the third Tuesday of August. Your attendance is required for this event. Please Register for New Faculty Orientation as soon as possible.

The goal of new faculty orientation (NFO) is to orient you to UH's mission and share important information and resources for faculty. NFO is one of the many ways UH invests in your success at the University of Houston. Links to websites are listed below. Please explore the orientation information and then register as soon as possible for the NFO session on the third Tuesday in August.

Again, welcome!
