New Faculty – Departmental Orientation with Raiderlink Overview - Fall 2020

chaired by Sung-Won Lee (Texas Tech Univ.)
Tuesday, 18 August 2020 from to (America/Chicago)
We, PHAS office, are excited about the upcoming semester and want to ensure we introduce our new faculty members to some of the tools available online to assist them with their employment, instruction, budgets, purchasing, travel, etc. as they begin their employment with Texas Tech Department of Physics and Astronomy! We know this semester will bring some unique challenges and wanted to help however they can as they are new to the campus.
We would like to introduce some of the staff via a Zoom meeting and allow our new faculty members a chance to see the system and ask any questions they may have.
