New Faculty Resources

Onboarding Steps

  1. You will receive onboarding items through your Workday inbox. It is important that you complete these items promptly, especially section one of your I-9.
  2. Obtain your UT ID card at the Flawn Academic Center’s ID card desk (2304 Whitis Ave, they have 15 minute parking spots outside the building, but you can also park in the pay parking on 24th St. between Whitis and Guadalupe St. The desk is open 10am-5pm on weekdays).
  3. If you have not already set up your password, please do so at the Flawn Academic Center IT help desk (next to the ID desk).
  4. Meet with your department contact to process your I-9. You must bring official documentation from this list.
  5. Reach out to your department chair or area head if you have questions about your syllabus or anything academic related.
  6. Please let your department contact know if you would like an email address. These emails are available to all tenured, tenure-track, and career non-tenure track faculty.
