Welcome to your first days as an Ursinus faculty member!

The Human Resources Office and the Office of Academic Affairs will guide you through the hiring process.

Below is information you may want to utilize during your first few days as a new faculty member! 

New Faculty Orientation 

New Faculty Orientation is held each semester before classes begin and is coordinated by Dr. Mark Schneider, Dean of the College and Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

A New Faculty Colloquium series is held on Mondays at 3:00 pm in the Bear’s Den throughout the fall semester.  

Relocation/Moving Policies 

Certain new faculty members may be entitled to relocation or moving reimbursement. Those who do qualify will be reimbursed according to the Internal Revenue Service Standard Mileage Rates (see attached IRS publication about Moving Expenses). The current rate (June 2017) is 19 cents per mile driven for moving purposes.
