New faculty will meet the academic leadership of Nebraska, hear from successful faculty about establishing careers in research and teaching, learn about faculty governance and employee benefits, and engage with a panel of faculty who have just completed their first year at Nebraska.

The day ends with an information fair packed with representatives of various campus units, followed by a reception where new faculty will be joined by campus leaders and college deans and at The Mill Coffee and Bistro at NIC.

New Faculty Football

The Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor has partnered with the Athletics Department to introduce new faculty to Husker Football. The Athletics Department is providing up to 100 complimentary tickets for new faculty to attend a football game, and will host these new faculty for a pre-game University Club event in the stadium. During this event, new faculty will have the opportunity to learn about connections between academics and athletics at Nebraska, in particular hearing about the support that is provided to Husker athletes to help ensure their academic success, and receiving a tour of the Sokol Enrichment Center. This year's New Faculty Football event will be in conjunction with the Nebraska-Illinois game on November 10, 2018.
