    Required Online Tutorials

    All new hires are required to complete the following online tutorials: Part-Time Faculty Policies, Sexual Harassment Prevention, and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

    The Part-Time Faculty Policies Online Tutorial is designed to provide general university policies and procedures to all part-time faculty members of The New School. Part-time faculty at The New School bargain collectively through Academics Come Together, ACT-UAW, Local 7902, and the Associated Musicians of Greater New York, Local 802. The Local 7902 contract and the Local 802 contract are available for download. Part-time faculty members are required to complete this and other online training programs. The New School reserves the right to add, change, and revoke policies and content at any time without notice. Furthermore, these policies and the tutorial are not to be construed as a contract.

    To successfully complete this tutorial, you must have your Banner ID or N number and a New School email address. If you do not have a Banner ID or a New School email address, please contact your school representative right away about obtaining these.

    Check your university email frequently for important announcements and updates.
