A Welcome to New Faculty from the Director
It is a real pleasure to welcome you to the UM faculty. You come from all four colleges and represent many departments: Psychology, Communication Studies, Communication Science & Disorders, Education, Counseling and Leadership, Business, and Mathematics. I look forward to meeting each of you personally at new faculty orientation on August 19 and 20. Check back often for updates about NFO 2013 activities.
New faculty are often eager to begin using UM’s electronic resources. Information on getting started will be reviewed at NFO 2013. If you want to begin exploring those resources now, go to the Getting Started page. There you will find instructions for setting up your email account, configuring your iPhone to access your UM email and calendar, viewing a shared calendar in Outlook 2010, and more. You will also learn how to obtain a photo ID, order keys, and register your vehicle. Finally, you will find information about Canvas, our new learning management system.
Again, a warm welcome to you all. Do not hesitate to call me at 205.665.6504 or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
