Faculty Jump Start
New tenured/tenure-track faculty are given the option to "jump start" their appointment to receive their first paycheck earlier and to have benefits coverage sooner. New faculty will start a few days prior to the standard first duty day and go through a multi-day orientation program. As part of this program, faculty will meet with their benefits representatives and have the opportunity to enroll before the term begins. To be eligible for this program newly hired tenured/tenure-track faculty must adhere to deadlines for turning in paperwork, information which is articulated in writing and sent to each newly hired faculty member.
