The Provost Office hosts the Orientation Workshop usually the middle of July.

Appointees Enrolment Form (Seamless Entry Process)

To help faculty transition more smoothly into the University and the community a "Seamless Entry Process" was created that allows new faculty to streamline a seemingly endless series of tedious administrative tasks – establishing an employee profile, registering for benefits and payroll, etc. – all in advance, all through one simple online resource.  In order for new faculty to enrol, they will need to have signed a letter of acceptance and have received a UWIN account and a PASSWORD to enrol online.  Contact the Provost Office for details.

Informational Material

In order to help academics transition to the University of Windsor and City of Windsor, a Faculty, Librarian and Ancillary Academic Staff Orientation Booklet has been prepared. The booklet lists many resources that may be of assistance in finalizing your employment at the University of Windsor and in your relocation to the City of Windsor.  If you do not find the information you are looking for in the information booklet, please do not hesitate to contact the Faculty Recruitment Coordinator at 519-561-1432.

Assistance is provided to new international academics with their immigration related matters such as obtaining a labour market opinion, completing work permit applications and permanent residency applications.
