New Faculty Orientation

Welcome to ACU!

We are excited you are now part of the ACU family! We know how overwhelming the initial experience must be. The good news is that you do not have to remember all of the information at once. We hope we can make things easier by putting some basic information on this page. Please bookmark this for your future use.

Required for all new faculty, NFO launches as a three-day orientation in mid-August and meets monthly throughout the school year. Topics include hospitality, theological foundations for pedagogy, sabbath rest, in addition to other teaching practices. Each new faculty member is assigned a mentor. Links to many of the resources that are shared as part of the training can be found on this page.
