New Faculty Information

Welcome to the Jackrabbit Family!

South Dakota State University is committed to supporting our new faculty as they transition into their roles at South Dakota State University. As new faculty there are a wide range of resources that will help to support the various roles you will play within our university community. Our goal with the CETL New Faculty Onboarding Program is to provide you a comprehensive set of resources, located in a central on-demand location, that can easily be referred to as you begin your career at SDSU or as questions arise later in your career as a Jackrabbit. We hope that you will find these resources helpful as you navigate the start of your SDSU career.

In order to help you navigate the start of your career at South Dakota State University the SDSU Faculty and Extension Personnel Professional Development Committee, supported by the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, has developed a comprehensive “Faculty Onboarding Checklist”. This checklist should be reviewed and discussed with your department head periodically during your first year at SDSU to ensure a successful transition to the university. The checklist can be found by clicking the “Faculty Onboarding Checklist” button below.
