As you prepare for faculty orientation, we want to ask you to please enroll in and complete the TerrapinSTRONG onboarding. We have provided a link below. All new benefits-eligible faculty members are required to complete the TerrapinSTRONG Onboarding, a presidential initiative that aims to make new members of our community feel welcomed to the University of Maryland, learn some of our history, understand our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and come to know our traditions. (Please remember that at UMD the category of “faculty” includes tenured, tenure-track, non-tenure track researchers, instructors, and administrators [known locally as professional-track or PTK] and postdoctoral researchers/instructors.)
The final session of orientation (August 25th, 2022) will be hosted by President Pines, who will share more about the TerrapinSTRONG initiative. It would be helpful if you were familiar with the content before attending.
If you have not done so already, please take this opportunity to complete the required TerrapinSTRONG onboarding before August 25th, 2022. The onboarding only takes 30 minutes. We recommend that you complete it sometime in the week before August 25th so the information is fresh, but you can do so anytime between now and August 25th.
To access the program, visit the TerrapinSTRONG Onboarding Logistics page.
Note: You must login with your UMD email address. If you do not yet have a UMD email account, you will need to complete the onboarding process once your appointment is active.
