Preparations for Arrival

Departments should plan ahead to make sure an office is available when a new colleague arrives and that renovations, if any, are complete. Likewise, any promised computing equipment should be ordered well in advance and be available when the faculty member arrives.

The HR onboarding process should be initiated two to three months prior to the faculty member’s start date so as to ensure its completion in a timely manner. Questions about this process should be addressed to Assistant Dean Karen Sholeen, sholeen@uic.edu.
