New Faculty Orientation

Every September, the DCAE hosts orientation for new, full-time faculty.  For the 2014-2015 academic year, orientation will be held on Tuesday, September 2nd and Wednesday, September 3rd, beginning at 9:30 a.m. on both days, in Behrakis Grand Hall, located in the Creese Student Center.  Please reference the event's agenda for more information on the topics and presenters.

To assist with our planning, we ask all new faculty to RSVP to this orientation as soon as possible.

To help all new faculty become more familiar with the structure of Drexel and the myriad of offices that can offer assistance, the DCAE has asked multiple units to create short informational videos on how faculty can best use their respective offices. Some of these videos are currently in post-production but a number of video have already been posted below. Please check back periodically for updated.

Please contact Allison Keene at with any questions or concerns.
