New Faculty

Welcome to Tennessee Tech! 

Whether you are brand new to the faculty role, transitioning from another role, or new to Tennessee Tech, we are excited to have you joining our team of incredible faculty.  We are here to help ensure your transition goes smoothly and assist as you prepare for the upcoming semester.  Below, you will find resources, information, and more, all directed at helping you begin this new phase. 

All new faculty hired during the fall semester, are required to participate in our New Faculty Orientation that will take place on August 5-6, 2024. For a full schedule and additional resources, visit our New Faculty Orientation page. If you were unable to attend our in-person training, or are not hired until later in the semester, please contact Emmie Acuff at to learn about our online option. 

If you have not already done so, you will need to complete the online LMS training for D2L iLearn. To register for the training, visit the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning's iLearn support page.
