New Faculty Orientation introduces new faculty to UMKC and to each other

New Faculty Orientation August 2019

Welcome to UMKC. We hope that this website will be a helpful resource for you as you navigate your way around Kansas City and our campus. Here you will find information regarding new faculty orientation and registration, as well as other university resources to help ease your transition into UMKC life.

Benefit/HR Information and Orientation Sessions

Please note that you are encouraged to complete your employment paperwork prior to New Faculty Orientation. You should receive a request to complete employment onboarding via email with the subject of “Welcome to the University of Missouri!” If you do not receive this email within 5 days of the completion of your criminal background check, please follow up with your department’s Human Resources Facilitator (HRF). 

Once you complete the electronic paperwork requested and supply us with all requested supporting documentation, the process to create your employment record will begin. Please note that access to UMKC email, Canvas, and other online tools necessary to establish your teaching and research programs cannot occur until Human Resources receives your requested employment forms and supporting documentation.
