Welcome to Vassar College. Detailed information that pertains to your work at Vassar appears in the Faculty Handbook and Vassar College Governance.


As a new faculty member, you will need to complete your onboarding process online via Workday. Part of the process is certifying the Federal Form I-9, which requires that you show certain forms of original ID in person. Please make an appointment with a representative in the Dean of the Faculty office to complete this requirement. The I-9 form must be completed prior to commencing employment, and before the College will be able to issue a paycheck.

ID Card

You are able to obtain your Vassar College ID Card from the Service Desk in the Computer Store in the College Center. You can read more about how it works on the Card Office website.


You will receive access to your Vassar email address 7 days before your start date. If you experience technical issues, please reach out to the Help Desk.


If you retain access to a mailbox, it will be found in the College Center. The Post Office will also have your key when you arrive.

New Faculty Orientation

New Faculty Orientation is hosted by the DoF office at the beginning of every academic year. Attendance is required for all new full-time faculty, and highly recommended for faculty teaching half-time or more.
