Getting Started

"First Steps" will assist you with the necessary forms that you will need to complete for the University, as well as any other forms required by your unit, once you've completed the interviewing process.  When hired, an appointment letter will be generated by the CCPS Dean's Office.  Once you've received and agreed to the terms of the appointment letter,

  • sign and return the letter to the College of Community and Public Service (CCPS) Dean's Office at 202C DEV

This will be the first hiring step with Human Resources. Next, you will need to complete the following forms and submit the necessary documents to your unit's assigned professional support staff:

Once all of the above documents have been signed and returned to your department's assigned Professional Support Staff (PSS), they will be submitted to Human Resources.  Human Resources will be assigned a number identification, or G-number, to you along with a parking permit.  With your G-number, your department will request access for an Academic Network Account, Outlook and Blackboard.

One more item that we request is:

  • A brief bio and recent professional headshot

These can be forwarded via email to your department's assigned professional support staff.  Check your unit's website for examples of faculty biographies.  This should be completed no later than the first week of class. These will be used for the department's webpage and social media.
