Online Adjunct Orientation

NLU has created an innovative online “Just In Time” adjunct orientation and professional development suite which enables our adjunct faculty to quickly get up to speed on the policies, procedures and teaching systems at the university. Once an adjunct faculty member is hired at NLU, they can access the training online from anywhere, anytime (even on a mobile device) creating an easily accessible and welcoming experience for our adjunct faculty.

Employee Orientation

Employee orientation serves as an introduction to the NLU culture, shared values, leadership and key University policies. Orientation provides employees the opportunity to receive materials, interact with new employees and ask questions.
